From Curious Tea

Here we have a typical high grade Assam in the form of Doomni Special Second Flush. This Assam comes from the Doomni tea estate in Nalbari District of Assam in India. Like with most teas from Assam, this is quite malty and mineral in flavour. This malty flavour is often described as the ‘British taste’.
Assam Doomni Special Second Flush is featured in our January 2015 Dark boxes. Second flush teas from Assam harvested in June-July tend to be more prized than other flushes due to the more distinguished full flavour profile with strong malty characteristics that many look for in a good Assam tea. And this Assam is no exception. The dry appearance of the leaf is very neat and it has plenty of gold tip. The resulting liquor is a bright dark red brown and the flavour is Assam’s typical mineral maltiness with fruity overtones. Very rich and distinct flavour that represents the best in Assam style teas – a great tea for that early morning drink!

Brew this tea with freshly boiled water for 3-5 minutes. This tea can be enjoyed with a little bit of milk if that’s your preferred way of taking Assam but also be sure to taste it without any additions first to fully appreciate the complex flavour profile of this great example of a Second Flush Assam.

I still needed some waking up, so I went for a bold tea. I havent had a good Assam in while, and this is a very good Assam! The leaves are small black and gold shards with small hairs. The aroma of the brewed leaves is alike a gold yunnan; it carries that baked bread and potato scent. The flavor is savory and delicious. The initial sip is of malt and dark maple wood. The aftertaste is a strong crystal sugar flavor. The vibrant crimson liquor carries a burnt sugar and bakery scent. This was delicious, and it was exactly what I needed to satisfy my tea craving.

Im so behind with my tasting notes. Rainy day is great to sip some tea.
This tea is part of my sampling set. very generous samples of 50g each.
3g 8oz 200F 3min
this tea is excellent. So sweet and malty and smooth. Practically no astringency, maybe as it cools it becomes noticeable. i find it with all indian/Ceylon teas. You should drink it while its hot. resteep was excellent @ 5min. not short of flavor at all. Sweet and smooth.
Im guessing if i would brew it longer some milk and sugar would be nice. i prefer it without any additions.

Thank you so much Curious Tea for the great opportunity to try your wonderful teas. I love the quality, taste and presentation. Highly recommended.
