Pitted this one up against two other Assam teas in a taste test. I carefully measure the tea (by weight) the time steeped (2 min to prevent bitterness,) and the sugar amount so all are done the same. Of the three, this one came out on top IMHO. It’s smooth with very little if any astringency. Has a nice caramel malty flavor with no lingering bitterness. I added no dairy products and it’s a nice cup just with the sweetener.
Assam Rembeng TGFOP Organic
This year’s Rembeng TGFOP is a wonderfully priced, organically grown Assam that is quite tippy for its grade. This medium bodied, everyday Assam has a biscuity character that is smooth and fruity with some soft honey notes. A very likeable everyday tea that stands up well to milk and sugar – and a great value!
