This is a lovely, tippy autumn flush Assam with a most attractive, slightly liquorice note. It is malty yet elegant, having plenty of tip evident. Just flown in this 2013 picking is a real treat. Infuse for five minutes. Drink with milk.

Assam Anandabagh STFGFOP1 Autumn Flush Tea 2013 from Grey’s Teas….you are impressive! Just when you think you know what an Assam is going to taste like you come across a ‘gem’ like this one that throws your taste buds for a loop but in a good way! This is more than ‘just an Assam’. This has fairly complex layers of flavors that puts on a show for any tea lover!
Once infused the color is that of a medium brown. It nearly glows in the cup! It smells slightly malty. The flavor is somewhat bold but ‘sits on the tongue well’. It only has a hint of sweet wood. The malty and rich notes are more upfront. There are specks of gentle liquorice in there as well. The end sip on to the after taste gives a bried nod to cocoa flavors, too.
I’m really loving this tea. Assam Anandabagh STFGFOP1 Autumn Flush Tea 2013 from Grey’s Teas is one I would probably store in my ‘secret stash’ and save for the end of a busy day to relax or even pump up a rough mid-morning while at work.
