I love tea and that’s not an understatement! I love new and original and after tasting so many teas there is a line that is drawn between good, great and inspiring. I love inspiring teas, they have to be natural and they have to taste good, represent their name and taste like it. There is nothing wrong with a hearty tea as well with abundance of ingredients. TasTea introduces a fine line of unique teas that are not just thrown together but you can see the thought process that went into make the blends. I appreciate that and I think you will as well.

Black Assam Tea
Price may vary according to the amount purchased.
Prior to brew: This tea has a very citrus scent, we’ve learned that scent does not always describe taste after brewing.
Brewed: Once brewed this tea is a Golden Amber hue.
Scent: The scent is that of a typical Earl Grey yet, more of a citrus scent then most.
Flavor: This is a well blended tea and leans heavily on a strong pretense of bergamot with a slight sour/bitter taste on the tongue.
Sentiments: There is nothing like an Earl Grey, the classic of teas and it can’t be blended with too many other things or you loose the Earl Grey flavor that everyone is looking for: the mix between Bergamot and Black tea, in this case Black Assam.
My Tea Vault score values of 1-10 (10 being the best): “7”.
Till next Tea….
