|"Assam Bukhail is the perfect breakfast tea to kick start your day. "|
My husband and I are going on a short hiking trip in Yosemite, and I’m currently racking my brain trying not to forget any essential items. I admittedly take the idea of being prepared for any situation a bit far, but if an emergency ever rears its ugly head I’ll have the waterproof matches, insulated blankets, protein bars, extra rope, and water purification tablets necessary to save the day. Being the responsible party requires fortification, so I’m enjoying a cup of Culinary Teas’ Assam Bukhail this morning to give me the edge I’ll need to prepare for any and all hiking related worst-case scenarios.
I thoroughly enjoy Assam teas. I can find an appreciation for any number of different teas, but a good, strong, flavorful cup of Assam would be my first choice more often than not. Assam Bukhail from Culinary Teas hails from the Bukhail tea estate owned by George Willamson Assam Ltd. George Willamson Assam Ltd. is the world’s largest privately held tea plantation group and it’s located near a remote region of Assam called Nagaland. How do I know this? Not only does Culinary Teas offer a superior selection of fine teas for sale, but they also offer extensive information for every tea they sell. The ladies of Culinary Tea are defiantly doing something very right.
Assam Bukhail’s leaves are leggy, wiry, and dark black in color with beautiful golden tips mixed in. The aroma of the dry leaves is sweet and malty. Once brewed, the infusion is a bright, ruddy, golden color with a nose very much as the dry leaves promised. My first sip is full and flavorly with the characteristic malty essence you expect from a good Assam tea. The rich, round body is just perfect with a clean finish that compels me to take another sip, and another, and yet another…
I brewed Assam Bukhail at 212 degrees for five minutes and this resulted in a really delicious, strong cup of tea. I enjoyed my first cup without anything added, but I put a bit of almond milk in my second cup and that developed more of the malty flavor I love. I highly recommend Assam Bukhail as a breakfast tea to kick start your day.
