From Teabox

An estate with 180 years of tea lineage to its credit, Chubwa is indisputably one of the finest producers of Assam teas.
And this summer black tea from estate offers a fair testimony to the high-quality standards the estate has come to be associated with. Overarching flavors of dates, walnut and honey can be relished in the aroma as well as the taste of the brew. These sweet notes are pleasantly balanced by a mild hit of palate astringency, making the overall experience of the brew highly satiating.

Dates, pine, walnut, hint of peach
Deep reddish-brown
Round sweetness, astringent, robust body, high notes of sweet dates, walnut, honey, and hint of peach

This is a very classic example of an Assam. The leaves are really nice to look at and particularly tippy with a gold strand on most leaves. Too bad they are on the smaller side and that I’ve been made snob by Taiwan Assams.

The liquor itself is malty, strong, a bit astringent with a little bit of dry fruit sweetness. I get the pine they describe in the smell and partially in the astringency. Honey is a bit more distinguishable along with the walnut. But honestly, it just tastes like tea. It would do well with rock sugar or honey pared with cream. Assam is a bit too strong for my preferences anyway.
