I love to try other-than-black Assam teas. And this is a lovely Green Assam. It has an amazing dry leaf scent, notes of mango! Yes, mango! Once the tea is brewed, this fragrance softens but it’s still there. Nice.
The tea starts out rather delicate but the flavors develop as I continue to sip. Vegetal notes and notes of fruit. Tangy citrus. It’s a very refreshing and rewarding cuppa. I felt it soothing and calming me as I sipped.
Good for a resteep, the flavors intensify with the second infusion.
