From two leaves and a bud

From two leaves and a bud:
Assam Tea is famous for its lush flavor and golden color. Rich brown leaves with golden tips yield a distinguished multi-layered “malty” flavor. We have chosen a traditional, orthodox full leaf tea. Full bodied, deep gold in color, Assam tea is the perfect breakfast tea. The oldest tea growing region of Assam in NE India has low, rolling hills creating a great environment for rich tea. Hot days combined with cool nights bring out the fullest flavor.

After reading my initial review (really more of a horror story) about my experience trying the Tamayokucha green tea from Two Leaves and a Bud, I received an email from the Marketing Coordinator of the company. She was sad to hear about my terrible experience and wanted to ensure that I had an opportunity to make the tea myself for its full true effect.

I just received the package today and was excited to see more than just a few samples of the Tamayokucha, but some of this Assam as well as the “Better Rest Blend” herbal tisane. As I have been quite in the mood for a black tea lately, I picked out one of the Assam samples and brewed it up.

The liquor is a lovely deep amber color and gives a nice malty, bitter aroma. I first tried the tea plain and found it surprisingly smooth. The bitterness in the aroma was mellowed quite a lot and left more of a sweet after-taste than I anticipated. I added some sugar and milk and this was transformed even further into a particularly delicious breakfast tea for me.

Despite the fact that it is a bagged tea, it actually rivals some of the loose breakfast blends I have. Well done, I say!

Now that? Is how customer service should be done. Yay!

TeaBrat

I agree, that was very nice of them!

Dinah Saur

Seriously!! Once I’ve sampled even more of their teas, I am definitely planning on wring a full review of the company on my blog. I want to share with as many people as possible how much they honestly care about not only their products, but their customers… even if they are indirect.

Very good experience and I honestly am amazed with how nice their teas are, even in bags.

Invader Zim

That is amazing customer service!

ScottTeaMan

Next to quality tea, customer service is #1 to me. Actually they go hand in hand. That is why I continually order from Upton Tea. They lack selection in a few teas-Puerhs especially. Their CS makes up for it. I do have to order Puerhs this year for sure!

LiberTEAS

Kudos to Two Leaves & A Bud for their customer service. I’ve always had a pleasant experience when I’ve dealt with them. They are top-notch.

Customer Service is very important to me too. I don’t care how good the teas are, if I get lousy customer service, I won’t shop with that purveyor again. I think companies should value their most important asset – their customers.

Dinah Saur

I agree 100%, LiberTEAS and Scott!! I have experienced bad customer service at places that have prevented me from returning. And I have experienced phenomenal customer service at places with slightly lower quality product, but kept returning as a result. This particular situation just makes me happy overall!

This one came in the complete sampler kit that was a gift from my ‘buds’ at Two Leaves (har, har, I kill me). The sampler is a neat way to try out some new teas. I grabbed this one for my morning cup. I have never had a whole leaf Assam before. I thought I wouldn’t much care it. I’ve always called Assam beige. Then again all I have had before is dust in a bag. This one I really like. Its fruity kind of like cherry and sweet. There is no bitterness. The malt is a nice touch. Got two mugs from the leaf gorged sachet.

I giggled at the pun…uh oh!

ashmanra

Oo, I have an Assam or two you need to try. I can’t drink most of them – they give me a stomach ache or heartburn – but I have a couple that are really nice!

K S

I have to take it easy with Assams as well. No more than a couple cups, then I need to switch to greens or something for a while. This one was nice and mellow. It reminded me a lot of a Chinese black. It was fun to have to rethink this type tea.

Bagged but bold!

This is a creamy malty not an overly-bold or strong manly malty. It’s still of good strength so we will go with a medium strength bold and malty description. It ‘brews’ quickly and is rather good. I’m very pleased with this morning cuppa.

This one is nowhere near as good as the Assam Breakfast sachet. Bleh! Though judging by the other notes, maybe the milk at this coffee shop was bad? In that case, I’ll stick to the one on campus that has Assam breakfast…

About a year ago, I decided that I was only going to buy clothes that I was obsessed with and couldn’t stop thinking about, so that eventually every morning that I got dressed would be an exciting event. I made this same type of decision last night about food and drink: to really, really WANT everything I eat or drink, from now on. Not only that, but to feel like it will only make me feel great afterward, rather than sluggish or regretful. It’s working so far!

Cofftea

I love that philosophy! That’s exactly why I start my day w/ matcha:)

Unscheduled overnight at the farm last night (father hospitalized, mom convalescing and can’t stay alone, lousy night’s sleep due to items a and b) so I was glad to have this neat little sachet bag to throw in my bag. Left well past its prime, it was still good and bready, but definitely dark rye or pumpernickel instead of a nice golden wheat.

Uniquity

I’m so sorry to hear of your parents’ troubles. My best wishes go to you and them.

gmathis

Thank you! Trying to maintain grace and humor; at least I’m receiving heavenly confirmation that I chose the correct line of work. I wasn’t wired to be a practical nurse or cook :)

ashmanra

Praying for you and your parents!

Its been a crazy day, 6 inches of rain and 16 hours w/o electricity. On top of that, I had no way to make any tea until now. I just can’t believe its been raining on the coast of Maine in Feb. On to the tea… This assam is very tasty and malty, I have had worse assams that were loose leaf. I’m thinking of going back and buying more of this tea tomorrow. Its a really nice smooth cup of tea with no bitterness.

A Classic pick me up and traditional brew! Its perfect to drink straight up and to drink it “cuppa style” with lots of sugar and/or milk early in the morning or afternoon. The tea not bad at all, not as stong and assertive as one may think of Assams teas but it delivers just the best amount of kick and character normally expected of Assams. The flavor was quite balance with a good amount maltiness and a little starchiness that gives this tea its comforting nature begging its dear drinker for more than a cup!
