This tasting note is for Starglory’s FOP Assam black. When they sent me their very generous sized samplings to try, they sent me several different blacks from different gardens. This was the only FOP with the other two being TGFOP1.
As I say in my full-length review of this tea: http://sororiteasisters.com/2014/11/23/assam-orthodox-black-tea-fop-from-starglory/ this is a perfect Assam.
It’s rich, malty and delicious. Sweet Caramel-y notes. No bitterness. Notes of fruit and flower in the background. It has that rich, chewy sort of flavor to it, like the caramelized, crispy, chewy crust of freshly baked bread. It’s very satisfying.
I’ve had a couple of black Assam teas from Starglory. This tasting note is for the TGFOP1 from the Dibrugarh estate. You can read my full-length review of this tea here: http://sororiteasisters.com/2014/11/06/assam-orthodox-black-tea-tgfop1-from-starglory/
This is one of the nicer Assam teas that I’ve encountered. It’s smooth and sweet. It’s got the rich, full-flavored, malty notes that you want from an assam, but with out the harsh notes. Really nice.
A really nice Green Assam tea. The dry leaf has a distinct vegetal aroma. When brewed, the tea smells much softer, not quite as grassy as the dry leaf.
It’s sweet and smooth and it has very little astringency. It’s both energizing and relaxing to sip. Hints of honey, buttery, nutty, vegetal without bitterness. The vegetative tones are something between grassy and mild steamed veggies.
A really nice cuppa.

Can’t take any pain killers today because of my stupid body deciding that this past weekend has been a great time to be constipated. >> Soo I have to do things to distract me from the all this pain. Drinking tea is a good distraction! So back to sampling all the ones I’ve gotten from swaps over the last few weeks! :D
So thanks to LiberTEAS for a sample of this one! :D
The steeping aroma was pretty woody, which made me kinda skeptical. But the actual taste was decent. Mainly just malt. Not much else. Not as strong as I’d like in an malty assam, but hey! It’s not wood flavored! So it’s fine with me xD
Flavors: Malt, Wood
