Loose-leaf black tea

Oct 20th, 2011, by Alex Zorach

This photo shows Kalami Assam, Long Leaf with Golden Tips, a loose-leaf black tea from Ahmad tea. You can read my review of this tea on RateTea.

I love this tea; like Ahmad Tea's other offerings, it offers is very reasonably priced and offers outstanding value. This particular tea is a robust black tea with considerable complexity: it is strong and bitter, and the aroma is malty, with fruity nuances.

If you look closely at this photo you can see the golden-orange color of the tips. This is not the highest grade of Assam but it does contain some tips, which tend to have a smoother flavor and make the tea a bit more caffeinated as well.
