Our first offering from Bokel plantation in Assam that is known for producing high quality orthodox and CTC teas.
The name Bokel is derived from the Assamese word “Bowkool” – which is the informal name of a local spider-flowered tree that grows in the region. The warm chocolate smell of the dry leaves which when brewed produces a mixed vegetal note. This second flush golden tippy black tea has a unique combination – it retains its maltiness with a sharp flavour that can be slightly bitter at the tip of the tounge. A unique tea that retains its maltiness with repeated steepings.

Assam Morning to you! It’s hotter than blazes out here, but my mouth wanted assam, so assam it gets! I reached into my box of samples from Teabox and I was the lucky winner today! This tea was black, tippy and wonderfully malty smelling in the packet….which turned into a gorgeous deep amber red liquor that smells malty and vaguely deeper…. my first sip was a glorious mouthful of malt, but not quite the usual malt note from assams….this is a TOASTY malt note!! What a brilliant surprise! The tea has a medium mouthfeel and is quite smooth. I steeped for 5 minutes, which is sometimes quite daring with assams when you don’t like astringency, but it all worked out beautifully with this Bokel. This would be a lovely cup to have on any given day…..but especially on a damp winter morning when you want a blanket in a cup. I hope Teabox will have this in stock again soon!

Sipdown! A very good Assam, with or without milk. I most certainly intend to purchase in the future, once my “no tea buying hiatus” expires.

Teabox has several really good assams. My favorite from last year was the Nokhroy and Lukwah.
I tried their assam samplepack and there wasn´t a single one that wern´t at least ok.
