    description

    Second flush teas from Assam are known for their distinctive malty flavor. This black tea acquires the same malty traits along with the gorgeous golden tips that make it stand out from the rest. Robust malty flavors interlaced by the delectable notes of brown dates and dried raisins hum throughout the entire duration of the cup. Briefly interrupted by the hints of cocoa, the experience finishes on stone-fruity flavors akin to apricots, making it a sublime cup of summer black tea.

    taste

    A full-bodied, brisk cup which opens with robust malty flavors interlaced with delectable notes of brown dates and dried raisins. These flavors hum along throughout; interrupted briefly by subtle hints of cocoa; which shore up around the edges. Muted woody textures is discernible towards the end; which however ebb to finish on exquisite stone-fruity flavors akin to apricots - adding a layer of depth and rounded feel to the cup. The mellow character lingers on, making for a memorable cup of Assam orthodox black tea.
