From Short and Stout

A fine Assam from Halmari Estate in India with flavorful whole leaves and lots of golden tips, an indication of premium quality from freshly plucked young leaves. A full bodied tea that produces a malty, sweet, and rich cup. Perfect as a morning beverage. Complemented well with milk.

Assam is a black tea named after the region of its production, Assam, in India. The tea plant is grown in the lowlands and the leaves are dark green and glossy and fairly wide compared to those of the Chinese tea plant. The tea is known for its body, briskness, malty flavor, and strong, bright color.

Assam tea is generally harvested twice, in a “first flush” and a “second flush.” The first flush is picked during late March. The second flush is harvested later and more expensive because of the gold tips that appear on the leaves. It is sweeter and more full-bodied and is generally considered superior to the first flush tea.

This tea tastes exactly as expected and definitely lived up to my expectations. Malt, sweetness, and a bit of pleasant bitterness from the tannins were my first tastes. The color is bright and coppery. I added a bit of soy milk, lightly sweetened, and the flavor blossomed and became fuller. I really enjoyed this tea for breakfast and had the rebrew, with no additives, for lunch. A very drinkable Assam, smooth, not astringent, and full of interesting layers of flavor.
