Thanks to Rumpus Parable for this one! This is a delicious assam. It is a bit stronger than I thought assams would be for the first cup. The flavor definitely lingers on the tongue! The second cup was more milder, like I thought assams would be… like a sweeter black tea. But I’m not complaining — the stronger the better for me!
Assam Margherita GFBOP
The tea plantation Margherita was founded in 1884 and is situated in the Indian district of Tinsukia. The total surface area of this tea garden is 946 hectares, of which approximately 614 hectares are used for the cultivation of tea. The city of Margherita that was named after a former Italian queen also gave its name to the plantation nearby. The well-shaped fine leaf with its golden tips develops a dark cup and a strong, spicy scent in the infusion. The full-bodied and strong flavor remains on the tongue for a long time. By many enjoyed with milk, cream or sugar.
