Assam Tippy Golden

Okay, so in all fairness, this is actually, “Assam Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe”. Tea classifications names have always been perplexing to say the least. Whatever the case and whatever the name, this has to be one of the best teas I’ve ever drank chugged back and I’ve chugged my way through many a cuppa.

The nose of it isn’t anything special, but the body is this incredibly smooth and lusciously butter. Maybe this isn’t the tea for everyone, but for me, it’s simply my own little atomic tea bomb. Talking about it anymore would make me sound like an idiot, but let’s just say that the 300+ years these folks have been blending tea have created one of the most perfect teas there is.

Pairings: Great alone, maybe a scone.
