From Teabox

A medium flowered Assam tea from Nokhroy that is known for its N 436 clones (refers to the unique hybrid) that is responsible for the taste. Assam teas are more known for its malt than its floweriness and in that respect this tea is unique. The leaves with its sweet scent and bright red liquor is a good addition to afternoon snacks giving you a strong jolt to continue your day afresh.

7g / 450ml Glazed ceramic pot.
5m @ 100C

Very powerful cup. Yet it is well balanced, malty with an astringancy that balances the sweet undertones of honey and ripe peach. Wonderful tea.
The is just a hint of a dry grainy feeling to the body, otherwise this tea would be a perfect cup. As it is very inexpensive I might get a bag of this ^^ Best assam i´ve tried so far.

What an extraordinary Assam. This is so wonderfully different, that I just checked the label to make sure I was drinking what I had intended to drink this morning! This tippy dry tea, which gave a gorgeous deep red/amber liquor, has just made my palate very happy. For me, malt is usually a heavier bottom-note in tea, that anchors the mid and top notes and give a solid base to the tea. Nokhroy Assam has an unusual maltiness that spreads through the cup, not just anchoring the base of the tea, but also gently joining with the mid note of peach to bring a smoothness and a baked biscuit note to the tea. The top note is a sensation of floral, but I can’t quite tell you if there is a floral note or if the peachy maltiness is causing a happy floral sensation in my mouth. Wow. There is some astringency present, but it is just enough to bring some magic to the teacup…and there is a lot of magic to be had here.
This is the kind of tea that makes me panic and order more immediately. Nokhroy Assam is one of the best assams I have had and though it is not currently in stock, Teabox assured me that they will have it in September. And that’s when my birthday is. Guess what I’m getting? :)
