From Black Bear Tea Company

A thick full bodied tea with good malty 2nd flush flavor. An excellent self-drinker.

INGREDIENTS:
Black Tea

DETAILS:
Tarajulie is a beautiful estate that lies in the shadows of the Himalayan Mountians on the Brahmaputra River plain. Some of the forested areas on the estate are maintained to provide cover for endangered animals, so at times wild elephants and the occasional tiger may be seen. The Assam valley is dominated by the Brahmaputra River – a large slowly meandering river which over millenia of spring and fall flooding has deposited a rich loam over the valley. The soil is deep abd sandy. The region suffers a very hot and steamy monsoon season, but equally important a relatively dry and cool winter. Perfect conditions for the Assam tea bush.

I picked up this delacacy while in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, at the recommendation of Kappi, a very nice and accommodating salesperson. The Black Bear tea company is worth visiting in the mall.

It is a broken grade tea, I wasn’t expecting too much from the character of the leaves. This can be quite deceiving in broken grades of tea, and in this case, it most certainly was. I was treating my palate to a wonderful peach undertone with this tea, followed by a caramel-malt finish. It had a very full mouth feel, yet managed to retain a delicacy I was not expecting for the grade. I belive the website describes it as ‘self-drinking’, and rightly so – I empty a pot very quickly! I do wish the third brew was a touch stronger, but I was pleasantly surprised at the flavour of the second, whereupon I found the peach a bit more distracting.

>NOTE: For those of you who would like to, stop by the Aegis area at World Steam Expo, where this is one of the teas I’ll be brewing for the heck of it. In fact, bring by teas to share, and I’ll share some of my own!
