This was really, really boring. My husband said “tasteless”. I brewed it at 2 tsp/cup and still not good. I usually drink more of the top tier when it comes to single estate assams and while I wasn’t expecting it to live up to that, I was expecting it to still have good flavor. For a similar price, I think the Upton East Frisian BOP is a much better value. May not be single estate but I don’t want to just pay for a name. Ended up throwing out the tin.
Mangalam Estate FTGFOP1 Cl. (TA57)
From one of Assam’s top estates, this selection represents one of the better values offered from the Assam district. The cup has a smooth profile, malty hints and clean finish. While it lacks the tippy leaf and complex character of the top-tier Mangalam teas, it is an excellent value in the cup.
