Assam Nokhroy Estate Black Tea (STGSOP1) from Simpson & Vail

Style: Assam – Region: Tinsukia, Assam, India

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
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.

Assam FTGFOP1 Tonganagaon from Socra Tea Detroit

Style: Assam – Region: Tinsukia, Assam, India

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...

Assam - Beesakopie Black Tea from Simpson & Vail

Style: Assam – Region: Tinsukia, Assam, India

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 31st, 2018

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.

Oct. 16th, 2018

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 ...

Nice deep amber liquor, very pleasant aroma and taste. This is a great every day tea. Good flavor makes it easy to sip all day. I will be buying more in the future.

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, ...

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.

Saimo Assam Summer Organic Artisanal Oolong from TEAORB

Style: Oolong Tea – Region: Tinsukia, Assam, India

93 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Dec. 20th, 2017

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 ...

84 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Nov. 27th, 2017

A soft tea that was less interesting than most of the other black teas TEAORB has sent me, but still very pleasant to drink. Reminds me a lot of hot chocolate; something I'd drink later in the afternoon.

The dry leaf of this tea is very dark, thick, and wiry, and noticeably more broken than many of the other large-...

Assam Tonganagaon, Organic from Simpson & Vail

Style: Assam – Region: Tinsukia, Assam, India

82 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Apr. 2nd, 2017

A smoother-than-average Assam that was still quite rich, a little on the tangy/fruity side.

Dry leaf smells very fruity, vegetal, a bit like potpourri, and also somewhat malty. Overall, rich, aromatic, and suggesting sweetness.

Surprisingly subdued for an Assam. The cup is light and a little more tangy than I e...

81 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Mar. 16th, 2017

A fruitier, tangier Assam that was an interesting change of pace. Not quite as hearty or satisfying as some, but enjoyable.

The dry leaf of this has a rich aroma that reminds me of my mom and grandma making black currant and raspberry jam in late summer. There are also malty notes, but the cooked fruit / jam aroma...

Dark brown liquor. Mild flavor and aroma. A bit "anemic" for my taste. I never use milk or sugar, I think this tea would be overwhelmed by either.

43 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
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...
