Assam Mangalam FTGFOP1 (CL/SP) (No. 264)
The Mangalam Estate has in recent years become a reliable source of top-grade Assams. This tea is no exception. The young leaves have a high concentration of golden tips. The cup color is sparkling copper-red and the infused leaf has notes of dark chocolate. This year’s Mangalam is a perfectly balanced, top quality Assam with outstanding, complex malty character and a lingering creamy aftertaste. This tea has much in common with a full-bodied, dry red wine, making it the perfect wine lover’s tea.
Recommendations: Use 1 heaping tsp. per 6oz. cup; heat fresh water to a roaring boil; let steep for 3-4 min. Try with milk and rock sugar.
Ingredients: Black tea
