Our Review
Assam is located on both sides of the Bramaputra River in India. This estate is located on the northern side of the river. It is hot and moist, ideal conditions for insects. Organic gardens are rare in Assam. The teas generally do have the golden tips found on the best Assams. Without tips, the sweet honey flavors are missing.
Dry Leaves Dark brown leaves.
Liquor A slightly lighter liquor than other Assams due to the fact that it is organic.
Aroma The aromas are a muted version of other Assams, subtle roasted malt notes.
Caffeine Level Caffeinated
Body This being a full leaf Assam, it is a medium bodied tea. Since there are a limited amount of golden tips, the heft is good.
Flavors The flavors are bittersweet roasted malt.
Brewing Time 4 to 5 minutes
Brewing Temperature 212° F

Smooth
Average Review:

To me this is no different than a classic black tea, it is very smooth and the batch I got was not bitter at all. It does give a good pick me up, and is not a bad morning tea either.

My 2nd favorite H&S offering!
Average Review:

Rich and hearty, mildly brisk, but not at all bitter, but do not over-brew this one! Takes milk and sugar well, but I prefer just a tsp of wildflower honey and no milk to let that bold flavor come through. Drink this tea on a cold, damp, overcast day and you'll swear the sun is shining!

Smooth, basic tea
Average Review:

This is a very basic, brisk tea. I like it because it's a bit easier on my stomach first thing in the morning but gives me a lift. Good for an afternoon pick-up as well.
