Assam Satrupa Estate
This Assam black tea is from the Satrupa Estate in the Doom Dooma tea belt of Upper Assam in
India. Assam teas are known for being full bodied, and having a malty component. This tea has both
of these characteristics but also with layers of complexity. The tea leaves when dry are a lovely black and brown crinkly mix. The aroma of tea leaves (both dry and after infusion) are inviting. Cocoa powder, and malt are in the forefront. A strong full flavored cup with layers of more cocoa powder, dark chocolate, honey, delicious black tea and malt are rounded out with a bit of astringency. Clean and well balanced with a long, long finish. Takes well to milk and sugar.
