The first time that I tried this sample was for my first cup of tea in the morning. I’ve drank it a few different ways: with milk and sugar, without milk and some sugar and without milk and sugar(that time I ran out of sugar that day).

I brewed the Mangalam to 208 degrees Fahrenheit. I steeped the tea for about 4 minutes. I added approximately one and half to two teaspoons of loose tea.

What I experienced was a smooth yet brisk flavor. It has complex flavors to it; from having a bit of honey to being reminiscent of the experiences that I used to have when I was a coffee drinker( the nice dark and richness in taste).
The liquor was a caramel color(when I drank it with milk) to a deep brownish-red color. The aroma was a mix of fragrance,which included light honey.The body this tea was a medium, fullness.
This in my opinion has the possibility of being an alternate of my much loved English Breakfast blend in the mornings.

Russel from Harney & Sons sent me this tea sample.Thank you once again. :)

I love Mangalam Assam teas! I buy most of my Assams from H & S. I usually drink mine with no milk or sugar. My water temp is about 195-200F, and I steep for 3:15 to 3:30. I love the aromas and flavors. Sometimes with a longer steep I add a touch of milk. I also enjoyed their 2010 Nahorhabi Assam I reviewed here:

Thanks for the tip! I just read your review on the Nahorhabi Full-Leaf Assam (2010). I’m going to put it on my list of teas to try in the future. I look forward to trying it.
