(This log is the second steep.) Just as I thought. This tea loses it’s astringency after the first steep. The second steep was much brighter and delightful. This tea is definitely a winner!

Even from my limited experience, this seems like a very good assam. I only have one tea of the same type to compare it too and that is A&D’s Thomas Sampson.

This seems lighter bodied than TS. But the scent is very similar—malty and Guinness-like…a bit biscuity. The color is a deep, very reddish amber. The taste is all malt, slightly sweet and bready—but very astringent and drying in the mouth.

I like it, it’s very good to have with a heavy meal—but I’m not sure I would choose this over A&D’s assam, for some reason. Although, wouldn’t it be funny if they both came from the same estate?

This is a great tea, and definitely deserving of its World Tea Championship award. It’s smooth and full-bodied, with a nice hint of bitterness and a malty bite on the finish. I’m looking forward to giving this a few more steeps and really diving into the flavor.

Good tea, nice astringentness at the end, good flavor.

This Assam is more refined and easy going than its grizzly brethren while retaining a prototypical potency that comes through in a quite intelligent way.

While I do enjoy a healthy dose of barbarism in an Assam, sometimes a good game of chess is a better workout than splitting wood or powerlifting. I would know.
