Barooti Assam (Broken Leaf with Golden Tips) from Ahmad Tea

Yet another high-quality loose-leaf tea from Ahmad, for a very reasonable price. I was surprised that Ahmad sells this alongside their Kalami Assam, which is a whole-leaf tea in a similar price range. This tea was very different, so I can understand how they'd carry both, but I didn't like it as much.

The cup has ...

I think I've found my breakfast tea, or in any case a certain kind of breakfast tea for a certain kind of mood. I think I've mentioned in other reviews that I tend to like my breakfast teas sweet, strong, and milky: my taste buds aren't so good at subtlety early in the morning.

The tea doesn't smell particularly str...

If you like a strong black tea then this one is for you. This tea has the smell of a traditional Assam with a hint of a fruity undertone that you just can't put your finger on. The steeped liquor is a beautiful amber color. This tea is full bodied, strong, malty, astringent, and very tannic. This tea lingers in your mo...

This has to be one of the best black teas that I've had so far! The tea has a smokey smell and the flavor is rich and complex, much more so than an average black tea - I look forward to having it again soon :)

The tea is really good! It's strong enough and it has a really nice flavor. I think if Arbor Teas would use this as a base for their flavored teas, I would like them so much better. I added cream and sugar.

This is my favorite Assam I've tried yet, excepting a few wholesale-only samples.

Aroma is very complex, suggestive of bread, dried fruit (raisins?), sweet rice, and a hint of wintergreen. There's a lot going on in the aroma; I found myself sipping it slowly and enjoying the different tones that developed.

Brews a very dark color, but flavor is surprisingly light (although still stronger than most light-colored teas). Tastes a lot more like high-grown Ceylon tea than like most Assam.

Aroma suggestive of spices and sweet rice, with quite a strong wood presence (like oak and cedar, unlike most teas). Peppery and punge...

I really liked this tea - for its price it is really a steal! I was suprised to find out that this tea is less expensive than Lipton, it definitely gives you more - I would definitely choose this as a staple basic tea to have around the house.

I really like this tea. It's a bit bitter, but I brewed it really strong and it has a deep, rich, crisp flavor, and I think the bitterness actually adds a good quality to it. I added cream and sugar.

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...

Assam tea has acquired its name from its region of production- Assam in India. Characteristics like rich malty flavor, fuller body, bright color, briskness and sweet aroma has made this tea a hot favorite amongst the tea-enthusiasts all over the world.

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...

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.
