Assam Golden Tips is so smooth and delicious. Just what we need on this drizzly Tuesday morning.
155 Tasting Notes
One of our most exquisite oolongs ever. We find it to be one of the creamiest of the oolongs, giving a nice coating sensation and some butteriness along with lime citrus notes and a quiet, underlying vegetal flavor. A very smooth pour.
Though the actual tea flavor is masked by the Osmanthus, this tea is very smooth, sweet and enjoyable. We don’t recommend more than 3 infusions though!
I put four heaping teaspoons of the Top Panyang Gold in a twenty-four ounce pot and steeped it for four and a half minutes. As I have worked in the tea tasting room for five years now, I find myself trying new steeping techniques on the various teas. This steeping of the Top Panyang Gold was a bit strong, the four heaping teaspoons in the twenty-four ounce pot may have been an innovative twist on the steep, but steeping it for four and a half minutes may have been thirty seconds too long. The subtleties of dark cocoa and malty honey with a hint of papaya were subdued due to the steep, but it still remains one of our most complex and entertaining teas.
A blend of eight different teas (keemun, assam, oolong, ceylon, yunnan, darjeeling, nilgiri, and silver tips). A great “pick me up” blend for this dreary Sunday morning here in Millerton.
Nahorhabi is a broken (smaller pieces) Assam from a Jayshree Group garden. The small tea flecks have lots of golden tips, making for an intense brew balanced with cooked honey and malt flavors.
Natural sweetness comes from the tips or the buds of the tea being harvested. Assam Golden Tips consists of only the tips, hence the name. With a malty, fruity mango-like and underlying honey notes, this is a tea to be desired. Limited in production and pricey, this tea will be that much more special.
Fruity, light, sweet. Delicous!
Smooth and delicious, with notes of cocoa. Perfect for this brisk and sunny day in the north east
A nice full bodied darjeeling with some underlying fruit notes
No notes yet.
Inherent qualities of peppery spice, rounded honey-like sweetness, not bad for $20 a pound.
HarSha is the last tea that we are presenting this weekend. It has the highest quality leaves of the three blends, as well as the smoothest flavors and aromas. You don’t need to add a thing!
Another one of our tea flights for the weekend, Stanley’s blend has a smooth malty flavor of Assam, lightened by Darjeeling.
This weekend we’re tasting three different Assam Darjeeling blends at the tea shop. East Frisian is a blend of hearty Assam that is lightened by Darjeeling and Ceylon. It’s a great tea to put milk and crystallized sugar in.
Our tea of the moment is a nice full bodied, sweet, malty brew of Fujian’s Golden Monkey. Perfect tea to hold in a cup and keep you war mon this brisk New Egnland day.
This tea is a knockout! It’s bold and smooth, malty and sweet and even a taste of smoke lingering at the end. If you’re a single malt whiskey drinker, or just an avid Chinese black tea drinker, you’ll really enjoy this brew.
It’s getting colder in New England! This robust, malty blend is warming us all up at the tea shop.
Starting off the day here at the tea shop with this smooth, great tea. A bit chilly here in upstate NY and this is the perfect way to warm up.
To celebrate our first appearance on Steepster, we brewed this all day long! What a great cup of tea with smooth nutty and fruity flavors. Rebrews were great as well!
Starting off a cloudy Sunday morning at the shop with this malty sweet tea. Hill, one of our tea tenders, likes it a bit on the stronger side, so it’s brisk, puckering your mouth into a smile, just like the Indians like to drink it!
Toasty, nutty and chocolaty, we love starting our mornings with this chinese black.
Starting the morning at the shop with a warm, creamy and sweet cup of some of Fujian’s tastiest tea. The toastiness is a great way to jump start the day.
Starting off the morning here at Harney’s with a nice warm pot of toasty Chinese Keemun.
