From Teabox

For Assam tea connoisseurs, this is a name which needs no introduction. This Halmari lot is a full bodied with slightly malty flavor that is delicately balanced with strength and briskness. Assam teas can be steeped multiple times generally including Halmari which maintains its briskness with multiple steeping. A must have tea to keep in your collection.

Liquor aroma: Malted sugar, Red dates (Jujubes) not Medjool

Palate: Tastes more like Medjool dates. Pretty good on its own, starts with only the barest hint of astringency but the more you drink, the astringency builds up and I eventually had to add both milk and sugar.

Brewed at 189˚F for 4:00.

I have been so busy at work lately that I brew a cup of tea and by the time it is cooled enough for me to drink I completely forget about it as I am so deep into what I am working on again to even contemplate picking up the cup and turning away from what I am doing. This has been great for my work, but bad for my tea drinking. Today I have a foggy brain. It is Monday, I have come down with a cold, and what I SHOULD be working on today is maddening. So, here I sit with a cup of tea I plan to take a few minutes to fully enjoy.

Assam and I do not mingle often enough. The good assam’s I have had, have been wonderful yet I don’t find myself drawn to them like their friends from China. This cup is perfect for the morning. Lots of malt. A slight fruityness and it just taste like I am drinking good piece of baked goods. I really should spend more time with Assams’s. This cup makes me long for more and more and more. Thank you for the wonderful swap donkeytiera.

Oooooh. This is a wonderful tea. The smell of the golden tippy dry leaf was biscuit-y and malty…and the liquid was dark red with the same fragrance, but now it was warm malty biscuits! I’m learning that I adore second flush assams as long as they are not too astringent, and this tea is one I could love. The malt and sweet biscuit give this Halmari a nice round mouthfeel and a beautiful smooth flavor profile. A solid citizen among Assams. It because even more wonderful with milk and sugar. Seriously, a tea that can make you forget about eating breakfast is an amazing mouthful of tea. I’m going back for seconds.
