East India Company Assam Black Tea – Make’s A Teasan Reminisce
Dax: This is a SOLID black tea that hit home hard for this teasan. Much like a real man has his own steak making strategy, a real teasan has a stock black tea as his/her daily drinker. The East India Company brought their A game and hothed us with The First Estate Assam. With refined packaging, this assam black tea made me think back to Hedley’s black tea. It has that “go-getter” agenda with assam leaves that are surely free-range and hormone-free. I’m not sure about the price point of this assam tea, but I’d drop duckets to get this on my everyday to-steep list.
Mike: East India Assam Tea is definitely a solid steep for the black tea fanatic. A strong black tea flavor penetrates this brew the way water peculates up your toilet paper when just the edge hits the water. Aromatic and sensual in its flavor, this is a steep that reminds me a lot of Hedley’s and I am allowed to say this: Teasan’s privilege. Anyway, despite the quality of the steep you got to discount this archetype for its plainess a bit. It lacks the mesquitability necessary to satisfy my palette in this genre so I’m giving it a rating probably below what it deserves. Solid daily drinker.
