This is a great standard black tea for all purposes. It is bright, floral, and fairly hard to misbrew. In my experience this tea tolerates a wide range of temperatures, and steeping time. It tastes fine by itself, but can be enjoyed with a little sweetener, milk, cream, and even a touch of whiskey or rum.
Assam Black Nuggets B.O.P
Assam tea is noted for its depth of flavour, dark burgundy-colored liquor, and ‘malty’ taste. Thought of in the west as a ‘milk tea’, Assam tea is drunk by Assamese without milk, but elsewhere in India it is often the base for quality chai, the national beverage.
