For much of the 2000s, this contended with Pengaree Gold Rush for my daily breakfast tea, mostly because it managed to balance the spice and flowery notes with a deep, strong, malty flavour. It used to be like an entire meal in a cup with milk and sugar, with flavour that developed on the palette for a good 20 or 30 seconds after drinking it.
I’ve found that Mangalam has got a bit weaker in recent years, too tippy and fruit with not enough strength of character or bass notes. Still good, but there are better alternatives, such as Khobong TGFOP1
