From Simple Loose Leaf

A rich, whole leaf Assam with dark leaves and golden tips produces a bright copper, full-bodied tea. Floral and citrus hints are followed by a malty aftertaste. Lovely with milk and sugar, and a wonderful stand-alone tea.

Ingredients: Assam Fine Tippy Golden Flower Orange Pekoe Black Tea

Wasn’t expecting this one to be any good. Was expecting it to just be another woody assam. xD But I was pleasantly surprised! The main flavor in this tea is malt! Which I am always a fan of! Happy to have a sample of this one. Thank you, LiberTEAS!!

Backlog:

(My 4600 tasting note!)

Another from my September Simple Loose Leaf box.

This is a grand Assam. Rich and full-bodied. A robust cup. It is sweet and has lovely sweet, creamy caramel-y notes that meld with the malt tones and hints of cacao. Notes of fruit and flower in the distance.

It’s warm and earthy. Cozy … while at the same time, it’s invigorating enough to give you that swift kick you need to get going.

A really, really good Assam. Here’s my full-length article: http://sororiteasisters.com/2014/09/18/assam-ftgfop-black-tea-from-simple-loose-leaf/

Wow, 4600!!! Congrats!

Kittenna

4600! And you seem to rarely log teas more than once, so does that mean you’ve tried about that many different teas, too?

LiberTEAS

Yeah, I don’t usually log teas more than once – some I do, but it’s not often. So yeah … I’ve probably had at least that many different types of tea, given the fact that I was writing reviews for the Tea Review Blog before I discovered steepster.

This assam is nice and bold with oaky, malty richness and a fruity flavor that is kinda tart and citrusy – like unripe plums or apricots. With a strong brisk dry finish at the end, this assam would be great with cream/sugar in the morning or afternoon tea.

I found this one a little too dry for me, but was overall pretty decent of an assam.

This tea is a very pretty example of FTGFOP black tea, or Finest Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe, because tea grading is rather long winded. This particular black tea (with its adorable golden tips) is from Assam, India. The aroma of the leaves is malty and quite sweet, like dried cherries and prunes, with a hint of fresh apricots and a finish of oak wood. Brewing the tea will get you a nice burst of a bright, brisk, and malty aroma. The wet leaves still retain their notes of fruit, but it is not as strong, the wet leaves have more of a wake you up aroma now.

The liquid without its leafy friends is brisk with notes of dried fruit, malt, and oak wood. It smells very rich, perfect for when I have just woken up and need a brisk awakening. The taste is brisk and quite malty with notes of oak wood and a sweet finish of dried fruit. The package said it was good as a straight tea or with milk and sugar, so I decided to honor my British relatives and have myself some milky tea. Adding the milk and sugar makes the briskness vanish and the richness of the malt take center stage, it is delicious with how rich and fruity it is now. I say if you want a black tea that wakes you up, go straight…if you want a black tea that soothes you, go with the milk and sugar.
