From Ronnefeldt

This Organic Assam Rambung by Ronnefeldt is A very strong, spicy tea with a slightly malty touch and a very dark, brown cup colour. Grown on the Rambung Estate, the pioneer tea garden of Organic tea cultivation in Assam. The area of Assam is a high plateau in the North-East of India on both sides of the river Brahmaputra. Production time for Ronnefeldt black teas is 20–24 hours; this is three times longer than the mechanical CTC (crush, tear, curl) method! Less then one third of the world’s teas are produced by the orthodox method. An extravagant broken tea with an abundance of aroma: strong, spicy and malty.An extravagant broken tea with an abundance of aroma: strong, spicy and malty.

this came to me from the lovely courtney as I asked her for a few of the ronnefeldt teas she had so i could try them as a company. This is not your malty sort of assam. Instead it’s more of a fruitier (but not a la taiwanese tea sort of fruity) cup of tea. There’s a boldness here that i can get behind, that is nice this morning. Thanks for sharing this one with me courtney!

I’m glad you enjoyed it. :)

Received this one in my swap with Courtney. I love assam. I am sure I have said in many of my reviews that CTC assam is one of my all time favourite teas.

This one is not a CTC version, but the leaves are quite small. There is not much smell to the tea dry. Brewed there is a very, very light assam smell. Slightly sweet.

The brewed tea is OK. I had quite high hopes for this one. I am not getting any malt, which is the most disappointing part. It is only moderately bold. There is a mild sweet honey flavour. I am not getting much spice either that is described in the description of this tea. To me, this one is almost bordering on a Ceylon. I am also getting a light metallic tang in the aftertaste, which I have had with some assams before.

The tea itself it good, I just prefer a much bolder and maltier assam. I think it may have been better with a larger quantity of tea, I used 1 tsp which is what I normally use.

Sorry this one wasn’t the best for you. I also love Assams, especially the malt of course.

That’s ok. You never know if you try. That is the great (and maybe not so great) thing about swaps. You get to try a bunch of teas to see if you like them, without committing to large amounts. I was still very happy to try it.

Courtney

Very true. :) I’m excited to try your homemade tea!

Lala

Handmade tea, maybe? That is the company name, it is a monthly tea service :)

Courtney

Ohhh. I thought it said handmade. Well, that’s not quite as fun haha. :P
