May. 21st, 2018

I specifically sought this tea out because it was from a region of Assam that is a little higher-altitude, and from where I hadn't previously tried any teas. Interestingly, it did taste a little more like a Darjeeling and other high-grown Himalayan region teas. Although I thought it was a very good tea, I liked it less...

Royal Golden Assam from Octavia Tea

Style: Black Tea – Region: Assam, India

88 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
May. 6th, 2018

While the dry leaves have a more mildly fruity generic black tea sort of smell, the brewed tea has a wonderfully sweet aroma of figs and raisins, and a similar taste. It's actually hard to taste anything else because of the strength of those notes: there's a background earthiness or something to add some substance and ...

Apr. 17th, 2018

This was a wonderfully smooth-flavored Assam, yet with good strength and complexity, and a great price. Thank you to Simpson & Vail for this sample!

Dry leaf, which is fine, curly, and has a moderate amount of golden tip, has an interesting aroma, initially there's a slight burned quality, suggestive of candle wax, ...

Apr. 12th, 2018

A subdued but rather strange Assam tea, muted in flavor and with a few off qualities.

This tea was kind of fascinating to review because I just tried a tea of a higher grade, from the same estate, from a different company, Simpson & Vail. I was surprised at how different the teas were. The difference of adding that ...

A fairly mild and smooth Assam, with noticeable iron-like tannin notes.

Mine was called Doomni Estate Black Tea, but it has the same number as what is on here. A smooth, lightly nutty Assam. Good.

This tea had a sublime combination of smoothness and depth characteristic of top-quality teas. The flavor was exceptional but the aroma a little weak and less interesting. Thank you to Simpson & Vail for the sample!

Very curly-looking leaf, beautiful, with a very large portion of orange tips (more than in the compa...

Mar. 19th, 2018

This is my type of Assam. An intensely strong tea with a brisk, refreshing character and a satisfying depth. Requires care in brewing though; this tea can become unpleasantly bitter and sour if steeped too long.

Dry leaf, broken but with ample golden tips, is lightly aromatic, malty, and pleasant.

Upon brewing t...

Mar. 16th, 2018

A singular tea, very different from other black teas I've tried: very bold in flavor, yet with a deeper, darker character a bit like ripened Pu-erh.

This tea stood out from TEAORB's other samples. Thanks again to Bahniman and TEAORB for the sample! It was a broken-leaf orthodox tea, the only one sold by the compan...

This was a very pleasant Assam, with a slightly more bready character, but otherwise what I expect from an Assam. A good, strong breakfast tea with a smoother than average flavor and some aromatic complexity.

Dry leaf smells pleasant, soft, slightly bready. Unlike some of the other teas, this one looks exactly like...

Feb. 12th, 2018

Another summer Assam green that I was not a fan of and found difficult to appreciate. Thank you TEAORB for the sample!

Dry leaf has a strong aroma of wood resin, like pine, and lightly smoky, almost a little rubbery. The leaf smell is a bit harsh in the way raw Pu-erh that has not been aged can be, and I'm not sur...

One of my favorite breakfast assams, robust and energizing. I brewed it for about 5 minutes, and then was even able to resteep it. It's hearty but fragrant although I can't pinpoint the specific aromas. You feel the tannins but they aren't harsh. A great tea to get you out of bed on a cold morning.

I like this full-bodied tea, with its earthy, almost oakey aroma, for breakfast on cold mornings. If you like good, robust Assams, this is a great choice for you.

I would drink this every morning, it's just so good. Pleasant but nondescript. Smooth tasting, medium body. This tea is not very astringent. I dislike astringent things. It's worth the price. Tastes just as good resteeped.

An above-average CTC tea for a good price. Another of TEAORB's samples, thank you!

The dry leaf is aromatic but the smell is a bit abrasive. It reminds me of the Assam from Quik Tea.

Upon brewing though, the aroma becomes much richer, heartier, and softer. There are notes of cocoa. I really love the flavor an...

This tea had some strange and different subtleties, but was mellow overall. Thank you to TEAORB for the sample!

The leaf is beautiful, very delicate, wiry black leaves with a hint of golden tips. It is fragile and brittle, and breaks easily. TEAORB describes its aroma as that of "pine". It doesn't quite smell lik...

Jan. 12th, 2018

There is a lot of good about this tea, but with some trade off. To start with, I love the bold aroma. Big aroma and a bigger bag of earl grey per serving than other brands I have tried (Bigelow, Twinnings, Earl Greyer to name a few). The trade off here is it needs to be brewed the full 5 minutes like it says on the pac...

A second-flush season black tea, this comes from the Brahmaputra valley. Light liquor with a moderate aroma and flavor. I found this tea to be a little too subtle and shy.

I found this expired tea tin, never opened and safely sealed, in a small import store when I was home over break. Knowing how well Assam teas can keep, I was curious to try it, and I was pleasantly surprised to find this tea much more aromatic than I would expect for something harvested around 4 years ago.

A fascinating and really enjoyable tea that was unlike any oolong I have ever tried before, but still shared some of my favorite qualities of oolongs. This tea had a soft and gentle quality, like the edge had been taken off relative to the green or black Assam teas I have been sampling recently.

I had no idea what ...

A relatively smooth black tea that I thought tasted better when brewed more strongly. One of the many samples TEAORB sent me, thank you!

Dry leaf, dark in appearance, slightly broken, with a gently curved shape, smells mild, pleasant but uninteresting: fruity and a little bit dusty.

The brewed cup smells sweet, ...

This tea tastes sort of bready and soapy at the same time, but in a good way. It's not too strong and not too astringent, which is good. It's a nice tea to have with bland foods because stronger foods would overpower the flavor of the tea. Overall this was a pretty decent tea, however, there are much cheaper tea that I...

Of all the black teas I've ever sampled, this one surprised me the most on the second steep. The first cup was very good but not particularly remarkable, but the second one, wow, it had an explosion of floral aroma that made it smell almost as if it had been scented with jasmine.

The dry leaf looks long, wiry, and ...
