Loose organic black tea from young Assam tree leaves.

Do not be confused by its appearance, It is twisted in the manner of Taiwanese Oolongs and looks like Hong Shui. But this is a bush of Assamica, which has finally grown up in one of the Thai Oolong plantations.

The taste is soft, milky-floral with fruity notes. The cover of gaiwan gives an amazing aroma of floral perfume. However, in this tea there is nothing from oolong, this is a very true red tea of a good firmness. Due to its semisphere shape, it can be easily packed into vacuum bags and thus stored and undergo aging. With age, the taste will only get better.

I haven't figured out why I like this tea so much. It has some really nice and well balanced flavors, Apples, Honey, Grapes, Mint, and the tea itself can withstand a few rounds of brewing gongfu. It's got a nice acidic kick mixed with the fruity floral flavors that probably come from the rolled processing. While it hints at some of those flavors you see in high oxidized rolled oolongs, it very much is an Assam Black Tea. It has the strength and slight smokiness of an Assam and has the fully oxidized dry flavor that rounds out the profile. I did medium length steeps, despite it being a black tea, and it has help up really well through all of the steeps.

Very decent, I drink black tea or oolong when it's not up to the sheng or pu-erh time is gone already, for example in the evening, when sheng pu-erh is better not to drink.

This tea is fantastic
Great flavor very complex and smooth, even the ending 5 infusions its still sweet after glow. I never noticed any bitterness. really impressed with this tea.

Spherical Assam - made in the best tradition of its kind. It allows to flexibly manipulate the result. Put it more or steep it longer - it hit the brutal drinkers, average brewing - it pleases aesthetes. It suits a lot for the tea conversation with dried fruits and natural sweets. I am satisfied with it. Its main feature, in my opinion, is that it is better to brew in a big pot, put more but steep less. Then it becomes brightly calm with a noble smooth and velvety taste.

Ball rolled red tea from Assam bushes from Tea Side
Soft, even, slightly tart and spicy, with a light sourness and woody notes. The infusion of an average density, beautiful, dark amber in color.
A good companion for such a rainy day as today in Rostov.
Pleasant and not intrusive, an interesting alternative to the reds from Yunnan and Fujian.
