This has a nice aroma, but a pretty insipid flavor with a little bitter bite to it.

Jsd Assam Summer Organic Artisanal Green Tea from TEAORB

Style: Assam Green – Region: Udalguri, Assam, India

49 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 1/5
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...

Nov. 14th, 2017

Another tea that I found too astringent to enjoy, no matter how I brewed it. I'm finding that about most of these summer-harvest Assam greens and even some of the spring ones. Thank you to TEAORB for the samples, this is an interesting experience even if I don't like all the teas.

Dry leaf smells heavy, pungent, v...

Innate Assam Summer Natural Artisanal Green from TEAORB

Style: Assam Green – Region: Sivasagar, Assam, India

51 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 2/5
Nov. 6th, 2017

An aromatically-interesting tea that was too harsh for me to enjoy it. I wonder if, like a raw or sheng Pu-erh, this tea could be aged. I couldn't enjoy drinking it as-is.

This is the first summer-harvest Assam green tea, and I was curious to see if it tasted appreciably different from the others. I was disappoin...

Esta Assam Spring Organic Artisanal Green from TEAORB

Style: Assam Green – Region: Dibrugarh, Assam, India

73 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 30th, 2017

When TEAORB sent me a massive array of Assam green teas to sample, I was a little worried that they would all taste too similar to each other, especially given how they all seem to look very similar to each other. Many of the Assam greens I've tried have been bold, alien, and the sort of tea I would need to be in the ...

Basundhara Assam Spring Organic Artisanal Green from TEAORB

Style: Assam Green – Region: Sonitpur, Assam, India

71 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 30th, 2017

I was attracted to this sample in the batch by TEAORB's description of a "forest floor" aroma and "toasted beans" palate. That appeals to me. I did not enjoy it as much as I had hoped, however.

The leaf, although a bit boring looking (wiry and solid brown in color), is pleasantly fragrant, a lot like a Chinese gre...

Gomvir Assam Spring Natural Artisanal Green from TEAORB

Style: Assam Green – Region: Dibrugarh, Assam, India

68 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 26th, 2017

My least favorite of the Assam green teas so far; still pleasant to drink but only if brewed carefully; has some nice aromatic complexity, but I found the aroma was fleeting, most evident right after I poured the water and not persisting as I drank the whole cup. It was also very easy to oversteep.

The dry leaf has...

Degozest Assam Spring Natural Artisanal Green from TEAORB

Style: Assam Green – Region: Dibrugarh, Assam, India

89 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 5/5
Oct. 20th, 2017

This tea stood out among the first several Assam green teas I sampled from TEAORB. I haven't tried the whole batch yet, not even half of it, but this is definitely my favorite so far.

The dry leaf is by far the most fragrant of the Assam greens I've tried. The smell is similar to the other teas: smoky, vegetal, an...

81 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Oct. 14th, 2017

This tea tasted a lot like an un-aged sheng pu-erh, but a softer one suitable for immediate consumption. This was my second tea sampled in my adventure into Assam green teas, thanks to the abundant small samples TEAORB sent me.

Dark, crinkly leaf smells heavy, but there's a faint light note suggesting sweetness, an...

Oct. 13th, 2017

A potent large-leafed green tea with a strong flavor, thick body, and a bold, slightly alien aroma.

This was the first Assam green tea I have ever tried. Thank you TEAORB for generously shipping me a huge assortment of Assam green teas. This one reminds me of Yunnan green teas more than anything else, a little lik...
