This orthodox Assam black tea embodies all of the beauty of Assam black teas. There is a generous portion of golden tips. The dry leaves have a sweet aroma of cocoa, malt, dried fruits, and wood. The liquor has a deep red color, with a moderate “cream down” effect visible in the first infusion. The aroma of the liquor is bold, with scents of malt, wood, and roses. The body is full, with a smooth texture. The taste fills the mouth with a fairly powerful astringency, and notes of malt, citrus, wood, and light roses. This Assam black tea will wake you up in the morning!
