From Assam Tea Company

This is a complex tea from start to finish. The dry leaves are aromatic and have a faint dried apricot scent. When I pour the hot water, the apricot smell is volatile and dissipates rapidly. A subtle malty aroma follows. In the cup the malty smell has company – a pleasant “greener” aroma, not like green tea but somewhat like green plants.
This tea is more astringent and not quite as silky as Cream. Slurping it really accentuates the malty character. Allowing the tea to sit in your mouth allows the tannins to work – wow! this will make your cheeks tingle. It’s especially nice as the smell sensations combine with the mouth feels – but this is true in any good cup of tea.

Satrupa – Small Whole SFTGFOP 2nd flush
Dry: clean, fruity-mulberry notes, earth, warm spice, hickory
Wet: clean, mellow, sweet, tannic, tin
Appearance: gorgeous leaf cut, mingled umber hued leaves, with silvery and golden threads,
Cup: bright, brassy-orange liquor. Light front flavor, extremely clean, gently sweet, with silk-like finish and faint textural build with repeated sips. Elusive fruity, walnut, and spicy notes mingle and merge with the refreshing and fluid body.

Subtle and extremely drinkable.

notes: I owe Saunam Bhattacharjee a debt of gratitude for his wonderful and generous nature and the transparency that he has shown with regards to his family’s tea company and the knowledge he shared of its production and estate. I contacted him in 2011 and quickly grew to appreciate all that he does and his gifts allowed me to also create a graded example of tea from every sort that I use in my educational classes, demos, and tastings. The samples he shared literally go from PF through the whole range of leaf cuts and this has allowed me to not only learn a great deal, but also to share this with others.
I chose to write about this tea, even though its over a year old, because Saunam recently had a personal tragedy befall his family as his mother and father were brutally murdered. You can read more directly here: http://mkbasia.blogspot.ca/search/label/Konapathar%20Tea%20Estate
and please offer you kind words if you can as this is an example of some of the social and political upheaval that permeates tea regions that are important for all of us to be aware. His loss is horrible and unimaginable and I deeply wish him the best.

On a side note as well…I have begun a tea blog http://705thteadisambiguation.blogspot.com/

and a facebook site “Tea Around Town” https://www.facebook.com/pages/Tea-Around-Town/435275026553658

that I hope will link in to future events and help grow my local tea culture.

That may also explain where some of my notes/posts go :)
