From The Republic of Tea

Back In The Body Tea—The robust, malty character of this tea comes from pure, unblended Assam leaves grown in Northern India. The hearty body makes it delicious with warm milk.

There exists two types of tea plants from which all tea plants come from. The names of these types derive from the locations that they are indigenous to: Camellia sinensis (or chinensis meaning Chinese in origin) and Camellia assamic (Assam in origin).

I am not typically a fan of Assam teas but a friend brought me a few bags to try and I don’t think it is too bad. Got some body to it but it isn’t knock me over strong. Only steeped it for 3 minutes, like I do with most black teas, and I am sure it would be a lot stronger if I let it steep longer. I don’t think I would drink this all the time, but I just might add this to my work tea collection since it is not bad for a bagged tea.

I like it! My first Assam and I really enjoy the maltiness of this tea.

This isn’t my favorite tea; I guess I prefer blends over straight Assam. It does have body, though, which I like, and it holds its own in milk. The wet leaves have a rich, earthy smell; I would describe the brewed tea’s flavor as malty.

Unfortunately, I didn’t reach the kettle in time to pour the water into the tea maker as it was boiling. I’ll try to be quicker next time so that my next cup will hopefully grow on me a bit more.

I have found that I really really prefer “builders” teas – black, somewhat malty, with sugar and milk added. This practically requires a little additional sugar and a long splash of milk to quell the astringency and pump up the maltiness.

Very nice, simple black tea. Unblended Assam was strong but not too strong, just right and it had a lovely richness. I sweetened it and I think next time I would add less sugar; it turned just a tad too sweet for me.

Very strong. This is tea for coffee drinkers. But if you like strong teas, this is a good one!

When I first started drinking tea over a year ago, I didn’t like the malty taste of Assam. But tastes change so I thought I’d try it again. I can’t say I’m overly fond of the smell, but this tea is smooth and not unpleasant. I can’t say I’m going to turn into a big Assam drinker but it’s not icky like I once thought it was.
