From Vahdam

An intensely flavorful Assam black tea blend with sweet, malty flavors and a sharp taste!

Tasting Notes
One of our best-selling Assam blends that is relatively mellow yet incredibly flavorful. This blend brings you the best of Assam teas sourced from the oldest and most reputed estates of Assam. The leaves are medium-sized, loosely rolled, and brownish-black with a scattering of taupe buds.The brisk liquor is medium bodied and starts on a sweet clean note, delving into stronger tannic flavors in the middle. Woody characters are dominant in the cup, although notes of malt and nuts make a fleeting appearance in the middle and in the aftertaste. The finish has a note of tree fruit. A perfect cup to start the day!

Adventaggedon Day 9 – Tea 6/6

I’m having a moment where it’s like my brain is just stalling out…

The dry leaf of this tea was perplexing to me because it looks like a nice, straight Assam with lots of gold tips throughout but the aroma definitely has a mild spice to it. I think that’s just scent contamination from the box/tin that aren’t airtight – because the tea didn’t really taste spiced steeped. What did it taste like!?

Uhh… It was good. I was at maximum memory retention for the day though, so I definitely do not remember specifics. Thankfully, I have a mostly full mini tin to explore at a future date to help answer that question when I feel like I have more bandwidth!

Some days I wish the “buffering” logo would display visibly above my head…

I love Japanese milk tea, and I was craving one tonight, so I thought I would try to recreate it at home. I wasn’t sure what type of black tea to use, but ended up deciding on Assam because it has a more assertive flavor and is commonly drunk with milk anyway!

I used about a tablespoon of tea and steeped it in 4 ounces of hot water for 3 minutes. Then I strained it over a little bit of ice and added 8 ounces of whole milk. I finished it off with a tablespoon of vanilla syrup for sweetness.

It actually came out really good! It’s creamy and sweet but I can still taste the Assam underneath. I think next time I’ll experiment with using more tea, or perhaps adding more water and less milk.

But for a first attempt, I’m really happy with it! :)

Mmm, milk tea! It’s funny, because I do love it, yet when I make black tea for myself, I tend to always make it straight up. Maybe I should try making some milk tea sometime too…

I love to buy the bottled ones at the Japanese market!

Sadly, I live in a podunk area with no foreign foods available. :-(

The tea is very strong and has malty and sweet characteristics. The sweet tones are somewhat overpowered by the bitterness of the tea. The bitterness for me is not very pleasant because it lingers for too long in your mouth.

Not one of Vahdam’s best Assam teas, but you can’t win them all ;-)

The best iced tea I have ever made! Very smooth and malty with a sugarcane finish, if this wasn’t so much more expensive than their regular assam I would make iced tea out of this every day.

Flavors: Malt, Sugarcane, Sweet

This is a brilliant tea for people who like a strong cuppa. I have this with or without milk, depending on my mood. Love it!
