Assam Mokalbari Second Flush from TeaGschwendner

Style: Assam – Region: Dibrugarh, Assam, India

92 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 25th, 2020

Half-litre pot at home, made from a sample included in the tea company's Advent Tea Calendar (2020) and consisting of fine, wiry leaves of Assam tea in all shades of brown. Pours clear dark copper brown (against white china) with no sediment. Clear aroma of Assam leaves, quite malty but not aggressive at all. Intense, ...

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...

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...

Fairly bland and inoffensive, with a cereal-like flavor. Not bad.

Dec. 9th, 2017

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, ...

Dec. 9th, 2017

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...

92 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Nov. 6th, 2017

This is a prototypical high-grade Assam. Really good and exactly what I expect out of an Assam. Strong and deep, but easy to drink and enjoyable through every sip. Contrasting with TEAORB's other samples, which have been exotic and unpredictable at times, this is a more traditional tea that I think a wide range of p...

Style: Assam – Region: Dibrugarh, Assam, India

88 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 17th, 2015

An earthy, complex tea whose true colors only seem to come out if brewed strongly.

The leaf of this is well-formed, but mostly dark (darker than suggested by the picture), and it has a strong and deep aroma, like a classic or typical Assam but with more complexity, more earthy and vegetal.

Produces a cup with a p...

Feb. 3rd, 2015

Golden Tips describes this on their website as a pretty exceptional tea, and I think it fully lived up to the description.

The dry leaf, beautifully curled and full of bright orange tip, is the most aromatic of any Assam I've encountered, with an intensely malty aroma, suggesting rye malt, and spicy as well.

The last of four rather old samples that were given to me as a gift by a friend. This one seemed to have lost a bit more of its aroma than the others did.

The dry leaf is beautiful, although slightly more broken than the others (the picture shows this quite accurately) and with a slightly lower portion of golden ti...

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...
