From Simpson & Vail

In the northeastern state of Assam in India, along the Brahmaputra River grow the hearty, malty Assam teas. The heavy rainfall and hot, humid day time temperatures in this area create the perfect green house like environment for growth, as well as helping to create the unique taste found only in Assam teas. Their distinct flavor can be enjoyed “as is”; however, Assam teas are often used in conjunction with other teas to create numerous blends, specifically breakfast teas. The Rani Estate, located in southwestern Assam, produces this delicious organic tea. The small, slender, black, slightly curled leaves have a malty aroma and brew to a bright cup with a deep amber liquor. The taste is smooth and slightly sweet, and leaves a creamy taste on the tongue.

Recently I ran out of assam so I decided it was time for me to place an order with Simpson & Vail for some more black teas. :)

I went to their website a few days ago after getting my order and this tea is no longer there. I wrote and they told me they wouldn’t be getting anymore because the price would have almost tripled. Maybe I got the last of it, I don’t know.

This is really a lovely assam, though. Sometimes they can be a bit on the bitter of “winey” side but this is luscious and smooth. It has a slight floral nose and the flavors are definitely of malt and a dark European bread, perhaps of pumpernickel origin. I added some soymilk and it is delicious that way, but I can also drink it plain which is unusual for an assam. I’m a bit sad I won’t be getting any more, this stuff is great!
