Jul. 10th, 2012

I really liked the smell of this tea, the spices were strong, especially the cloves. Unfortunately, the taste didn't match. I thought the tea itself was flavorless in comparison to it's rich aroma.

Assam Tea from Frontier

Style: Assam – Region: Assam, India

70 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Jun. 23rd, 2012

A classic Assam: no particularly outstanding qualities, yet a solid tea and pleasing to drink, especially for people who like strong, dark teas.

Strong, malty, with some fruity qualities. Some astringency and bitterness but less than a typical Assam. In spite of being orthodox tea of a decent grade, the leaf infus...

I had this tea with my breakfast and was pretty happy with it. I thought it was mild and smooth, and I liked that it didn't leave a bitter taste in my mouth.

A great tea to make a chai blend base. Koenga golden tip Assam second flush Invoice can give this malty flavour when brewed for 5 minutes in 212 F. Its is one of the finest offering from Assam that is mild unlike halmari strong. Though I like of strong Assam.

Well I dont use te abags a lot, but this Golden Assam seems to me from Halmari TE invoice. The leaves are evenly graded with more of black leaves less of golden tips. The liquor is malty sweet and astringent at the back of the tongue, little bitterness at the tip of the tongue. The full body rich orange color liquor is...

Pure Assam Tea Bags from Taylors of Harrogate

Style: Assam – Region: Assam, India

60 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Feb. 20th, 2012

UPDATE: Good Assam with fine aroma, full bodied with that slight weakness in mid-palate characteristic of pure Assams, smoky finish. One negative: it seems to have a short shelf life as loose tea. As I write this, it is harvest time in Assam, and this tea (fresh from the vendor) seems to be faded or of lesser quality.

Wanted to relax tonight before bed, so I thought the perfect way to do this was to take a nice, hot bubble bath, sip some Assam Melody from Adagio teas, and finish the novel I’ve been reading.

I wanted to try a sample that wasn’t too risky since I didn’t want to accidentally grab a sampler I didn’t like and ...

This is a regular favorite for me. I'm most likely to drink it in a cold morning, but I enjoy it at all times of year.

This tea offers extraordinary quality for its price! I bought a pound of it for $6.15 at a middle-eastern grocery store. It is large pieces of broken leaves.

Dry leaf has a rich and complex ar...

I find that the Tazo Chai tends to have too much pepper flavor for me. Of all the chai's I have tried this has the strongest pepper taste and I just don' like it. I prefer cinnamon and cloves.

73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Sep. 5th, 2011

This was a solid Assam or Irish Breakfast from a tea bag, with a fairly complex aroma, definitely one of the best strong black teas I've had from such a simple tea bag of broken-leaf tea.

Sharp, edgy, piercing, yet full-bodied and having depth. Aroma has tones of malt, dried fruit, rice, and red wine. Very fresh t...

Aug. 14th, 2011

The dry leaf had an appealing smell, but this tea failed to impress me.

Flavor is rather savory, quite sour, and barely bitter at all. I prefer bitter to sour flavors in my tea. Aroma is muddled: slightly smoky, slightly malty, slightly herbaceous. Slightly peppery like some Yunnan teas and with some vegetal qual...

Jul. 11th, 2011

This is an excellent chai with a very good balance of spices. It has a nice, rich flavor that lingers for a long time. I added a little milk and sugar to mine and it tastes just like a chai latte you'd get at a coffee shop (probably because it's smoother and more full-bodied than a lot of teabag chais). This is one ...

Nice deep reddish brown liquor. I'd say a wonderful every day Assam. The price is right. The loose tea has a great aroma and inviting appearance. For the price you can't go wrong. It would be fantastic for anyone making their special blends.

Jun. 29th, 2011

The dry leaf has a very strong, sweet, and deep fruity aroma, like candied fruit.

When I brewed the cup, for only 3 minutes, the initial aroma was among the most powerful of any Assam I have tried. This tea is strong, with an edge and a good amount of bitterness, but it is also somewhat light. Tastes more high-gro...

Jun. 18th, 2011

Another disappointment from Teavana. Recommended by the shop clerk for me since I love strong black flavorful teas. Aroma was tempting, but no matter how strong I brew it, there is zero taste! Flat, boring, tastless tea with nice color. Won't buy again.

This is a whole-leaf tea but I was less impressed with it relative to other broken-leaf teas I have tried lately.

Brewed as instructed, this is a strong Assam with a classic flavor profile, malty, tannic, slightly savory. I find Upton's description made me expect a smoother tea than this is.

Some Assams have the...

TJ's version of Irish Breakfast tastes like primarily Kenyan OP with a bit of Assam added for depth and body. There is not much of the malty character I look for in an Irish Breakfast tea. I have some loose leaf single estate Kenyan OP's which taste and smell very similar and make great iced tea. I think iced tea is wh...

May. 15th, 2011

A very strong Assam, stronger than Upton's description makes it sound. Very full flavor: fairly bitter, slightly sour, very savory, and even slightly salty. Aroma is spicy, suggesting allspice and black pepper. Also a bit smoky, with some fruity tones as well. Peppery finish.

Interesting, but a bit too strong fo...
