From Adagio Teas

Black tea from the Assam region of India. Assam tea brews up a burgundy-red cup with rich aroma and strong malty taste. The latter makes Assam an ideal breakfast-time tea. The ‘Assam Melody’ is a flavorful second-flush (summer) tea from the well-regarded Meleng estate.

The best thing about this tea is the aroma that stays in mouth after you drink it. Very smooth and tasteful.

big, strong, and slightly malty; this tea is satisfying but nothing excellent. there is a sort of raisiny tone to it, definitely an astringency, and a sort of earthiness. upon sniffing the dry leaves i’m reminded of fallen leaves, but this does not carry over to the brewed product. I drink it with plenty of milk and sugar

I’m finally stopping my teabag laziness and using more of my Adagio samples. Definitely enjoying this one; I think I’ll try making some iced tea with it soon.

This is one of my all-time favorites. I sometimes add cardamom.
