This is a tasting room favorite and arguably one of the best Orthodox Assams. The tea is named for Kumar Mangalam Birla, who was once the son of the estate’s owners and is now one of its managers. This is a full-bodied Assam, though it is lighter than many. Its aromas are sweet and toasty and its flavor has the signature Assam briskness with a special light toasted flavor, similar to dark honey or light molasses.
