Assam Sunshine Summer Black Tea

description

Scatters of golden tips embellish the dark colored leaves in this tea, just the sight of which is enough to stir a cheer in you.
The rich infusion emits aroma of sweet herbs and dates, reluctantly admitting a tangy nuance towards the end. A rush of full, brisk flavors and astringency pique the palate before revealing curt flavors of berry and a notable acidic tang, which lingers long in the finish. This tea is not for the faint-hearted but the addition of milk sure mellows it for a more relaxed experience.

Hits all the Assam notes

Likes : Smooth Body, High Quality.

Best Served : Morning.

A lovely broad malty Assam summer tea. Takes milk well. robust but not fruity. Like a hobbit, I tend to enjoy this one for second-breakfast around 10:30.
