Murphulani Special Summer Black Tea

description

Murphulani is a beautiful estate, with stunning landscapes. And it seems to us that the tea too, showcases this wonderfully, with a nice sheen to the leaves and an attractive scattering of golden tips. The liquor is lighter than the typical Assam. The malty taste forms the backbone but is offset by notes of citrus in the beginning and those of betel leaves in the finish. A great value buy for those who enjoy Assam tea.

Superb Assam

Best Served : Morning, Afternoon, Dessert Tea.

As mentioned in the description, it has an apricot smell and taste that is really unique and delicious. This tea is a wonderful combination of flavor and texture. It's a rich, malty, sweet Assam with a luscious apricot flavor. I really, really love this tea and haven't had another one with a similar flavor profile.

Good taste and aroma.

Likes : Great Aroma, Smooth Body.

Best Served : Morning, Afternoon.

I made two pots of this tea, and I would continue to enjoy it. It's not perfect. It could have a bit more favor, but it has the taste I like, and it's strong enough to keep me going. It stands up well to sugar.

A lighter, brighter Assam tea

Likes : Smooth Body, High Quality, Unique Flavor Profile.

Best Served : Afternoon.

A strong and earthy flavour profile, leaning towards the brighter, lighter notes. A perfect afternoon pick-me-up. Most enjoyable!

Strong tea with strong notes

Dislikes : Strong.

Best Served : Anytime.

Nice tea. But found the strong notes of dates and cilantro (combined together, this tasted like non-roasted cocoa) too dominating! Definitely not one of the subtle teas. But this tea provides it promised caffeine dosage.

A Lighter Assam

Likes : Freshness, Smooth Body.

Best Served : Morning.

Disclaimer: I am trying this tea at work under less than ideal circumstances. It has a nice color in the cup - kind of like a dark honey. First sip provides a very full, fruity taste that coats the mouth and invites a second. Which is good, because the aroma is a bit overpowering - a bit too malty and fruity. That being said, this is a lovely light Assam.
