- Assam, India
- Generous malted notes of barley and an ale-like fruity depth lead the way, reinforced by a cast of notes ranging from caramel to Brazil nuts. Astringency in just the right measure ensures balance on your palate. An indisputable, unforgettable tour de force.
This is one of the best teas I have ever tasted. The aroma in unbeaten: full nose and tones of malt and barley brew a dark amber cup that satisfies every time. Superb and worth every penny.
This is a 5 star tea, but I don’t think it’s twice as good as some of the other Assams, though it is twice the price. I just finished a sampler size of it and did very much enjoy it–it was distinctively different from Assam Koomsong and the Harmutty–more bright than heavy. I definitely got the bread/malt/barley flavors, and I agree it’s the perfect astringency. I like the Koomsong just a little bit better because it has this malty-raisin flavor that I like, and, I think, a deeper more compelling aroma. Still, this was quite good.
