For a cold showery winter morning this tea hits the spot. It’s a full leaf assam with some tips in it. I steeped it my usual 2 minutes for an assam and the astringency/bitterness is mostly non-existent, so no need for dairy additives. I find the brew bold and dark, the flavor smooth and moderately malty. It’s a good cup to sip and reflect on this last day of 2009.
Assam Majulighur TGFOP
This full-leaf Assam is one of the best values in tea we have seen. It has a well sorted, quite tippy leaf that infuses to a solid, smooth cup with a malty-sweet flavor.
Recommendations: Use 1 level tsp. per 6 oz. cup; heat fresh water to a roaring steep for 4 min. Try with milk and rock sugar.
