I thought of Tea Source for a Tea Tasting Discussion due to two stunning Indian teas I ordered last year. Here is some background information from the Teasource site:
Assam teas come from the Assam valley in northeast India along the banks of the Brahamaputra River and are prized for their heartiness and their malty flavor.
Assam, Sree Sibari Estate, SFTGFOP1
This stunning tea is laced with golden tips and buds. It has a wonderful, strong, malty aroma. The brewed cup has a very rich, deep, and complex flavor that includes thick malty notes, sweet high tones, and a slightly spicy presence from the first sip through the aftertaste.
The tasting is open to all members who have posted at least ten (10) substantive posts in the Coffee and Tea forum, and preference will be given until midnight (EDST) Monday June 1, 2009 to those who have not yet participated in any of the three previous tastings.
As always, everyone is welcome to participate in the discussion, whether or not you receive a sample.
So, please PM me now if you would like to receive one of the the free samples and participate in the tasting and discussion.
