  1. That got my attention! :) Thanks for the wonderful tea knowledge.

  2. How is the Nahorhabi? There was a year, maybe 12 or 13 years ago now, when I had an incredible one from Peet’s. A bygone era for Assams, it would seem…

    • The Assam Nahorhabi is EXCELLENT. It’s thick, malty, heavy, with a tiny hint of sweetness and very smooth. Assams have changed a lot in the last few years, thanks to climate change, and it’s getting harder and harder to find those thick/rich/complex Assams of old- this is one of them.

      And you’re right it is somewhat of a bygone era, but every once in a while we can find one of those old school high-grade classic Assams. New Assams are tending to be more bright with more flavor notes up front and less weight/thickness/thick maltiness.
