I'm an avowed Assam tea lover--I drink about a pot a day. Unfortunately this was a lot of caffeine and my doctor has told me to cut back. This is definitely milder than a regular Assam but it has the right flavor profile and the balance is good. I make it a bit stronger to bump up the mild flavor, and it has become my go-to tea for my daily pot.
I just made my own chai for the first time with this decaf Assam. The discontinuance of H&S's Indian Spice was the kick in the pants I needed to both try to replicate it and cut back on my caffeine consumption. I couldn't even tell I was drinking decaf (which is rare)!
I've been wanting to cut back slowly on caffeine intake. I've been able to do so with this tasty tea. Very satisfying late in the day when you want a cuppa but don't want the rush.
