From TeaGschwendner

Even our vaunted Assam Mokalbari is undone by this newcomer, a sophisticated selection serving notice that perfection is always a possibility. Generous malted notes of barley and an ale-like fruity depth lead the way, reinforced by a cast of notes ranging from caramel to Brazil nuts. Astringency in just the right measure ensures balance on your palate. An indisputable, unforgettable tour de force.

TeaGschwender makes great claims for this tea, which I am still trying to validate. It is light, and the lack of bitterness allows the fruity/nutty flavors to come through, but I’m still partial to the Mangalam Estate teas, maybe because I feel they have a greater foundation. I’m not sure Iike the direction toward which many Assams and Darjeelings are moving—striving for delicacy on the top notes, while sacrificing body in the process. Still, in the scheme of things, this is a satisfying Assam.

I have heard good things about this Assam Marangi tea, and also enjoy Mangalam Estate teas. I think I will have to try this one myself! :)

I’ve been away from Steepster for a while – just saw your review here. I actually wondered on my TeaGschwender Marangi if it was just stale. It was nothing like the Upton tea I had earlier this week. I would say the Upton one was more “refined” if that can have a taste, but very pleasant.

Kitty

Just read through my earlier tasting notes. Interesting as Upton suggests brewing for 5 minutes instead of 4. It was quite good at 5 minutes. Although, I would think the TeaGswhwender selection I tried was from the previous year so that may make a difference too.

I just finished the last of this one. I was kind of wishy-washy on this tea. It did kind of grow on me over time, and I did finish the 250gm pouch, but as I ask myself whether I would purchase this tea again, the answer is ‘no’. It has a nice nutty bright tea flavor and might be a good option for those that don’t like the bigger assams.

Made my way over to Ann Arbor this weekend and stopped by the Tea Haus. The tea cupboard was a little empty. Really like this tea even if it’s a little pricey. I love the carmel, malty flavors. One can pick out the fruity flavors as well. Great for sipping on an overcast gloomy spring day.

I always try and get the most out of my leaves, so I steeped the same leaves for a second time. Not bad, really, just not as good as the first steeping.

Beautiful stuff with delicate, fruity-floral/nutty depth. As far as value for money, though, I’d say that this tea is a bit over-priced. You can get an excellent Meleng or Mangalam for two thirds, maybe even half the price. I’m not sorry I sampled this one, though!

This Assam is lighter than other notable teas from the region such as the Hattialli (broken) and the Mokalbari (SFTGFOP1). A lighter color than the aforementioned Assams, the beauty is in its lush reddish hues, similar to hibiscus that seem to penetrate the lovely transparent light caramel color which to me was like peering through stained glass at the slight sediment at the bottom of the cup. While the flavors are not as direct as other black teas of note, the clear fruity, nutty, caramel notes are highlighted with a heavy malt and roasted barley flavor reminiscent of a Belgian abbey dubbel beer yet holds a very mild astringency making for a perfectly balanced cup. This balance makes it a wonderful every day, or “sessionable” Assam which would also be at home at a gathering of tea enthusiasts.

Rich, malty, notes of caramel, and nuts and like the description suggests, almost ale-like. Reminds me of scotch ale or even a fine Belgian Tripel (of course without the alcohol). Complex heady cup to start the day. Delicious.

I really liked this tea. I can’t describe whether it has carmel or malty flavors, but I really enjoyed it. The dryness (astringency) is noticable but not pronounced. I steeped it for three minutes – I don’t think I’d want to go longer and am confident I’ll be able to go with a shorter time, too.

One of TeaGschwendner’s best Assams. There are malty, fruity and some candy (yes, candy!) notes, which make this Assam interesting.

One of TeaGschwendner’s most expensive offerings, this malty Assam has a complex flavor that borders on the fruity and floral. It is, however, like most Assams, bitter and astringent.

Lighter, fruitier and sweeter than I expected. This is not a bad thing.
