I was excited and curious to order from TeaSource, and this was one of the first teas I tried. I have been impressed with all of the teas I've tried, including this one.

The leaf is strongly aromatic and pleasant, mostly a malty smell, and it also gives off the sense that this tea packs a punch.

The brewed cup is...

Apr. 28th, 2019

It was a bit of challenge to describe the aroma. I finally decided on 'sweet pine'. There is a 'wood' aroma with a definite 'sweet' under tone. The liquor is a deep amber color, malty. I'm not catching any 'peppery' after taste. A decent Assam. Good price for a good tea.

Kalami Assam Indian Tea from Ahmad Tea

Style: Assam – Region: Assam, India

85 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 30th, 2019

Ahmad Tea provides some of the best values in entry-level loose leaf tea out there.

Their Kalami Assam beautifully exemplifies all that we adore about Assam teas. The leaf aroma is malty, earthy, and slightly vegetal.

I used 1 tsp per cup infused for about 4 minutes. Brew is richly brown and copper in the cup. ...

One of my favorite non-blended teas, the base tea for breakfast teas (in my opinion.)

Mar. 7th, 2019

Based on the previous reviews, I bought a pound box of this tea. Most of what I could say was already said by Alex in their spot-on review. I find that I get the best cup of tea by allowing it to steep for ten minutes or so.

Even with such a long steep, the bitterness is understated for an Assam. Though the tea gets...

My wife's acquaintance's mom, who had passed away recently, bought this tea in London but never opened it. Since we like tea, we ended up with it from her estate sale. It's odd how, since I've started reviewing here, teas seem to fall out of the sky and into my hands through a variety of fortuitous circumstances, in ...

Jan. 29th, 2019

A remarkably smooth tea able to be brewed super strongly. This tea reminded me of Kenyan teas: it was strong and smooth, and not terribly aromatic, but with some of the qualities I like best in a tea.

This was the lowest grade of the three teas I tried from this company, and it was still surprisingly good. The leaf ...

A brisk Assam with a slight harshness, but also more interesting than most.

Thank you to my friend Janina for bringing this back to me from Germany! This was one of three Assams I sampled from Teekörbchen Gelnhausen, and it was good, and aptly described. It's also the first tea I've sampled from Nagaon, a district ...

Solid Assam, with a woody flavor and some ironic tannins, but still smooth. Certainly worth the bargain price.

Thanks to Greg and Inge for this Christmas gift. A malty and complex Assam that feels very nice on the palate. This went very well with soy milk, which is not what always happens when I add soy milk. A treat for sure.

Somehow I let this sample that I bought slip through the cracks and only am trying it now. Unfortunately, it's no longer for sale. A shame, because I thought it outstanding!

The dry leaf is quite beautiful, short, curly leaves with lots of golden tips, and has a complex and fascinating fragrance, sort of fruity, a r...

A rich, deep, dark Assam that was still quite smooth and able to be brewed strongly. Among my favorite teas I've sampled from Murchie's, this would be a great choice for an everyday breakfast tea.

The dry leaf of this has a mild but very pleasant smell, sort of deep, soft, a little foresty, with a hint of wintergree...

I bought this tea as a grey market item from a nearby Indian grocery store. Lately, I've tried and enjoyed a number of teas from Indian brands and this one is no exception.

As far as appearance, the dry CTC "crumbs" are larger and slightly lighter in color than those of most other CTC teas. The brewing tea reminds m...

79 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Nov. 27th, 2018

A fairly typical Assam of slightly-above-average quality. This was one of four teas we tried on our recent visit to Socra Tea Detroit, a great cafe and tea shop that I recommend checking out if you're in the area.

I've now tried three teas from Tonganagaon estate, a tea garden in upper Assam that seems to produce sm...

The aroma has a slight earthy with hint of chocolate smell. Taste is clean without a strong after taste, slight hint of honey, smooth and mild. Nice amber color. I made it 'strong' with heaping teaspoons and 5 minute steep. This will be easy to drink all day. I never use milk or sugar.

The flavor of this tea reminded me of something from my first sip, but what eluded me for quite a while. It wasn't until I actually sat down and read the official description that I finally figured out what it was. The Mana Organics website indicates that it is "a blend of malt and sweet." This description couldn't be ...

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...

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 ...

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, ...

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 ...
