No info about this available on the T&H web site as they no longer offer this. But even more puzzling, I googled Gilapukri Estate and very little came up. It does appear that this is one of the ingredients in the Todd & Holland Assam Heritage Blend. It’s a never before opened sample.

An interesting, green note to the dry leaf aroma. The steeped tea has a mineral note. Stones from one side, raw potato from another. And yet there’s also something sweet, a little like molasses. And something vaguely floral. The tea is clear and deep red, like the darkest part of a cut garnet stone.

The complexity of the aroma also characterizes the flavor. It has a little sourness, a bitter edge, but its additive rather than reductive. The body is lighter than I would have expected, and there’s no malt here, nor are there any chocolate notes that I can taste. There’s a sharpness to the flavor, and an unfortunate throat grab.

Hard to decide how to rate this one. It gets points for being interesting, but it’s not what I usually think of when I think of what makes Assam appealing and I could do without the throat grab.
