From TeaGschwendner

The smaller, cut leaf gives this robust Assam its even chocolate color and granular shape. While not the pinnacle of refinement, machine processed CTC (Crush, Tea & Curl) teas make dependable breakfast companions and stand up well to milk and sugar.

This Assam is a CTC BOP second flush and it is very suddenly apparent when you see, smell, and taste this tea. To start off, it has a deep brown, chocolate liquor (similar to coffee). It has a robust malty aroma that is unilateral in that it is strongly simple and flat. When you drink this tea, you really don’t taste much. There is a certain briskness to it (2.5 of 5) that is apparent on the sides of the palate; however the strength of the tea overshadows the briskness that would accompany the rear of the palate (and quite possibly mellows out the bit as well). The Numalighur is very full bodied and provides a powerfully clean finish. In addition to this, lingering on this tea is intense to the point that it feels like it coats the tongue. TeaGschwendner is right when they say that this tea handles cream and sugar well (for the purpose of tasting, I did not use any additives). My consensus, this tea makes a great post-meal tea if you’re in the need for pick me up. Keep in mind that it is strong.

This tea will leave your taste buds shot. Not in a bad way; however, this should be the last tea one should try if you’re going through more than one.
