Tasters Review:

I know this isn’t a Holiday-Related Tea Post…but…I like this tea and really want to share it with you all today!  It’s Assam Borengajuli from Culinary Teas…a strong and sturdy black tea!

When I first smelled the dry leaves I was thinking it smelled a little like those Raisins in the lil red boxes…a different yet welcomed aroma.

Post infusion it smells like bakey black tea.  A hefty Assam, indeed!

The taste is a BOLD black tea taste a little sweet at first but then turns a bit jammy.

I did try a 2nd infusion on this, too, and it was quite nice!  It was much smoother the 2nd time around and was more fruit-like.  It bet it would go great with toast!  YUM!

    I had my first Borengajuli in Wyoming of all places. Haven’t had the Culinary Teas one yet, though. It’s on the list! (It’s a very long list.)


Our mutual love for tea and writing about it inspired us to start this blog so that we could better share this love with others.

One thing I (Anne) learned very early on in my career as a tea artist is that everyone has different preferences, and every single tea tastes differently on every single palate.  So just because one of us doesn’t happen to like a tea, doesn’t mean that YOU (the reader) will not.

We try to be as impartial as we can.  We do have our favorites.  We are human.  But we do our very best to be as fair and as honest about a tea as we can be.

You might not agree with my assessment – or with Jennifer’s assessment – of a tea.  But that’s OK… if we all liked the same exact tea – we’d only need ONE kind of tea and … wow… that sounds really boring, indeed!

What a beautiful world it is that we have so many teas to suit so many tea enthusiasts!
