Your Tisane of Smart . . .
Tea report!
Tea: 31021 Assam Mangalam Second Flush FTGFOP1 Black Classic
Source: TeaHaus (via a kind reader at World Steam Expo)
Before: A beautiful large leaf black with some chocolate color less toasted a few gold tips as well.
After: seeped to a pretty very dark amber, almost orange, very pale with milk
Thoughts: Its very hard to get this tea strong, even with a fully loaded tea-ball and over 5 minutes the mug stayed on the amber end of the spectrum.
Flavor: very very mild and gentle. Low notes of fruit aromas, apricot perhaps, even a little cocoa, but mere ghosts. A great starter tea but because of the lack of strength a little watery to my buds. A wonderful late afternoon beverage it was also low on the caffeine scale, and good for mellow sipping.
