From Red Tea Box

The Nahorhabi tea garden lies in the Sivasagar district, stretching out over 696 hectares. Its evenly rolled small black leaves with occasional orange tips produce a mahogany infusion. Its taste is balanced, sweetly honeyed, with mildly spicy finish.

A past lover went to the Red Tea Box in Toronto and purchased a steel tin with 1 oz of this tea in it. I do remember enjoying it with her, and then it got forgotten at my parent’s place and relegated to the back of a cupboard for 3 – 4 years.
I found it and rescued it recently, but was hesitant to try a tea that old. A few days ago I thought what the hell and gave it a brew.
Boiling water in a pre-heated tea pot, 1 heaping tsp per cup and 1 for the pot (3 cup brew), and a 5 min steep. Served with milk and sugar.
Even after all these years it has a classic Assam flavour, but is full and robust without any bitterness. One can distinguish the earthy and spicy tones of this tea on the palate, with a hint of floral tones to the scent, but not in the taste.
I would say this is one of the better Assams I have had the pleasure to drink and will be looking for more soon.
Thank the gods the tin was airtight.
