A green tea I like! A rarity so far in my adventure, unfortunately.
Very transparent. A little vegetal.
Flowery is certainly the flavor they went for. Its a very mild tea, very smooth.
This was a good tea for preparing for lunch. I’m not very partial to green teas in general, so I probably wouldn’t buy more, but its one of my more yummy greens. I’d certainly recommend it, a nice alternative to jasmine green.
Flavors: Floral, Vegetal
For me, this one was not as good as some of the others I have tried from this brand. I am not a fan of astringency unless it is super mild, and this one was a hair over what I like. It is bready, but not sweet. I think I lean towards more fruity and sweet notes, which help cut any astringency. Someone who likes a bit of a “drier” taste would probably like this a lot more.
classic assam from the peak second flush season. Sprinkled evenly with golden tips, the tea make for a bright liquor, a full body with a unique maltiness.
TGOP1 Summer flush.
Malty, strong cup. Had this one for breakfast, and it’s actually quite good. A proper wake-=up tea.
Another one from the TTB….
Have really wanted to try something from Golden Tips Teas, so glad that someone threw this one in. So thanks to whoever put this in! :D
And guess what you guys!!
THIS ONE DOESN’T TASTE ONLY LIKE WOOD.
Probably is the best tea I’ve had all night. xD
It tastes a bit like wood, but there’s definitely some malt in it. Tastes almost creamy actually.
This is the win of the night!
Flavors: Cream, Malt, Wood
No notes yet. Add one?
Flavors: Muscatel, Stonefruits
First tea I’m trying from my large pack of samples from the GTT sale! Very exciting!
Smells very earthy and malty. Some grassy scent is mixed in with it, but with a darker tone, not a fresh, green smell. This serious Assam means business. ^^
Not a dime of astringency. Mmm this is rich. A very pleasant amount of malt, makes for a very smooth cup of tea. It leaves a yummy aftertaste that makes me want more between sips. Not as dark as the aroma was leading me to believe, but still a nicely bodied Assam.
I shall have to drink my 2nd steep in the morning, this would be a great way to wake up! Ah, but what an intro to GTT, I am excited to try more!
Flavors: Earth, Malt, Sweet, warm grass
aggr… awful early grey.
Smells great, but it’s like drinking perfume. Very unnatural, odd taste. Looks like someone dropped the bergamot oil bottle in this tea. :(
Great fan of a proper earl grey, but will steer away from this one.
FTGFOP1 grade darjeeling.
subscribed to Golden Tips Teas India monthly tea club and received this generous sample.
This darjeeling is reminds me of why I am such a fan of Darjeeling teas!
Amazing. Very deep muscatel flavour, with a complex after-taste. This is darjeeling Heaven. !
Everything is just absolutely perfect about this one ….. mmm. this may well be one I would love to keep in stock forever!
golden tip Assam tea
1 tablespoon – 200ml little glass teapot;
Taken plain, & no sugar.
1st steep: 4 min. a golden, almost deep orange tea, with a sweet aftertaste. Yummie. Hints of baked bread.
This one is amazing! This is …. well, YUM capital letters!
2nd steep: golden orange cuppa, yet again with a sweet aftertaste. Steeped a bit longer, but I guess this tea doesn’g get bitter, no matter what.
3rd steep: Golden yellow; hints of baked bread is now gone; but still very pleasant, like a 1st flush assam.
I think I can get one more steep, but since I have more teas from Golden Tips to review, i will leave that to others.
This fragrant second flush darjeeling from Goomtee estate by way of Golden Tips brews up a beautiful amber color and tastes smooth and—I hate to say it, but it’s true—gulpable.
Delicious! I kept the temperature low and the steep time short, because it is so easy to oversteep good darjeelings and mistake poor parameters for bitterness in the tea itself. No bitterness here, and not too grassy either. This is a slightly sweeter darjeeling with, yes, a somewhat fruity demeanor. The dried tea is exceptionally fragrant and though mostly charcoal colored, there are also some lighter tips.
This tea is a good example of why people become obsessed with darjeeling. ;-)
Very grapey and sweet, and very good. I really am enjoying the Golden Tips subscription – I was never a huge black tea fan before, particularly unflavored. Now I am realizing how much more they have to offer. As a fan of sweeter flavors, this one is right up my alley.
And now I understand what people were saying about second flush teas. Yep.
My first sip. Sweet. Grape. Yep, I finally get it.
I did not expect to do more than casually like this tea, to be honest, but I knew I had to try it and give it a chance.
I really, really like this tea. I want more.
It’s sweet and slightly floral. I now know what people mean when they say “muscatal” when they’re talking about this tea. It really did remind me of those muscat grapes. Amazing.
I was worried that this subscription wouldn’t be right for me, but I guess I’m really growing as a tea lover. Sorry, Marzipan, I won’t be sending this one to you.
Another from my Assam Sampler.
I think CTC gets a bad rap. I could have sworn I saw someone review this yesterday but no other reviews are showing up. I pulled it out of the never-ending box of goodies to try this morning. Other people pick out their clothes for the morning, I pick out my tea ahead of time.
One thing I like about CTC is that the tea becomes dark very quickly. It’s almost dark like coffee. This was really good – bold and robust. A perfect kick in the keester early morning screen.
I suppose part of me originally thought an Assam is an Assam, right? But then the other part of me started thinking about things like terroirs, and reasoned that of course they have to be different. That’s what I am enjoying so much about trying all of these different Assams and Darjeelings. I feel like I am learning about the different estates while I am discovering which teas I like best.
I really liked this Assam. While I liked the one I had yesterday, I think I liked this one a notch more. The mouthfeel was very round and comforting. I could see it becoming a favorite morning tea for me.
