Smooth Morning Cuppa
Alexander – CA – October 24, 2018

Number one go-to for the morning cup. Good flavor, not astringent, great with milk. Great value for organic.

Very Good Choice
Mr.Doubrava – IL – September 23, 2018

This is a really good selection for people like me who prefer a medium-to-full bodied Assam. The brew is not excessively tannic, but is still rich. I suggest brewing about three and a half minutes for a cup that is full of varietal flavor, yet devoid of bitterness, and perfect for drinking neat, without milk. A great everyday black assam.

Another Winner

A bold leaf Assam, with marvelous flavor, that makes for a terrific afternoon break. As it's a bigger leaf, I use my large infuser ('Perma Brew' Pot Size Infuser - AI23) instead of my smaller one (Perma-Brew Cup Infuser - AI20) to allow the leaves more room to bloom. I keep a small supply of this in my office for "those" days.

Brisk, Clean and Round
Sensado Tea – HI – July 02, 2018

Aromatic black, typical Assam, with hints of caramel and stone fruits. Subtle tannins complementing the aroma.

Really good, nice with milk
Mary Pat – MA – May 25, 2018

I like this tea with milk. It's a great tea taste without a lot of tannins. I'm no expert, but I know what I like. And this is it.

Organic and that is a plus, use with milk and maybe sugar, 50

Maybe an average Assam for the ones I have had, never had a $30 for 100gm assam so maybe I just don't know what a great assam is. I lived in India and we made it really strong, the teas were usually not high quality do to people not being rich in india. The taste was good cause of the cardamon fresh ground and spices and strong buffalo milk.

After trying many teas I found that I prefer Assam, especially in the morning. Like a former reviewer, I am not versed in the language, but I find this seasons pick especially smooth and pleasing no matter the strength of the "cuppa". Thank you Upton!

I don't know the language of tea, but this is unbelievably tasty. My favorite after shifting from this to that for many years.

Tim – NY – October 09, 2017

This makes for a smooth cup of Assam. It is not very malty, but has some tannins and a light to moderate flavor intensity. There is a little woody/leafy taste to it.
