From Good Tea

Na severovýchodě Indie, ve státě Assam, okrese Baksa, na ploše větší než je 1040 hektarů, najdeme ve světě prosnulou čajovou plantáž Doomini. Plantáž lemuje řeka Brahmaputra, která je jedním z důležitých prvků ekosystému ideálního pro růst čaje. Vysoké teploty, časté srážky, dostatek stínu i přímého slunce, to vše se podílí na nezaměnitelném sladovém charakteru čaje. Zahrada se nachází v nulové nadmořské výšce nedaleko národního parku Manas, který je známý početnou populací opic Golden Langurs a divokých bizonů.

Kudrnaté čajové lístky mají černou barvu se zlatavými tipsy. Voní po sušených hrozinkách, medu a sedmikráskách. Čaj nabízí nálev sytě červené až čokoládové barvy, který bohatě voní po sladu, hrozinkách, medu a lékořice. Chuť je plná s výraznou texturou, která pokryje jazyk a krk podobně jako med. Je komplexní se sladovou koncovkou, která harmonizuje s typickou trpkostí černého Assamu.

Označení TGFOP1 znamená “Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe #1” a popisuje kvalitu čajových lístků. Jedná se o nejvyšší kvalitu lístků a pupenů. Mezi čajovými nadšenci koluje slovní hříčka, že “FTGFOP” znamená “Far Too Good For Ordinary People”.

Hi everyone (waves). Week long hiatus because of my thesis. Thesis done (hopefully). Deadline on Friday. “I like to live dangerously!”

Anyway, I decided to try a new shop for me and I just decided to give a several new teas. I was craving buying new teas, but not from subsciption. Genuine, pure teas…

And as I wanted some pure black, I decided to order this one. Not only to mention that typo in the name… my pouch is saying 2nd Flush 2015. Not happy to see it much, but it was cheap tea. Truly, very cheap tea. That 15 grams sample was cheaper than a beer here. And beer is cheap.

Anyway, took two teaspoons and my 300 ml mug.

It’s described as very malty tea with raisins, honey and licorice flavour, but honestly… (it’s because age?) it was rather like a malty and tobacco. With strong tannic aftertaste. Raisins, in my opinion are different, and honey… no way, sadly.

Overall, it was quite mediocre tea. Far from Mokalbari Assam (but as well completely different area). And that biiter aftertaste isn’t a thing to look forward as well. Well, at least it was cheap and just a small sample. Not every tea is a winning tea.

Flavors: Malt, Tannic, Tobacco

Sorry to hear the Assam wasn’t that good. Sometimes lowering the temperature can detract from the bitterness, though not always. I hope the other teas from this company are better.

Yay! “Done” is a beautiful word, isn’t it?

Leafhopper: I am kind of afraid it being truly from 2015 :( A shame, as they don’t wrote that on the website. I will try to lower the temperature a wee bit, but it’s black and and 96°C should not be a troublesome. I don’t think I have overleafed it, but I may try a bit less leaf too. Or it’s just not my cup of tea.

gmathis: Ah-haha! Indeed. It was a hard week indeed, but the results seems promising! I just need to pass one last exam next Friday! And then just the finals.

I’m pretty sure they shouldn’t be selling you 2015 tea without outright stating it on their website? That doesn’t seem right…

Martin Bednář

I agree with you tea-sipper, but for the price I won’t care. At least I know I have to be careful when ordering such a cheap teas there. Selling 2015 black tea is wrong, for sure. Athough it has been in airtight package, it wasn’t fresh obviously!

Sometimes some people are interested in tea from years ago, but that is only okay when they state that upfront on the website!
