Mangalam Estate FTGFOP1 Cl.

The Mangalam Estate is popular among tea afficionados, and each year we look forward to their offerings. This 2017 selection produces a dark copper-amber cup with classic Mangalam character, full-bodied and eye-opening. The toasty aroma hints of malt. The flavor is very smooth and bright with notes of malt and spice. Enjoy it neat or with a dollop of milk.

One of my standards
Loren – CO – November 10, 2017

This is a great assam and one I have been buying for years, I always have it on hand. It is easy to over brew; I think a 3.5-4 min steep is optimal. The nose is a bit floral. This tea's flavor is rich and full bodied starting with fruit, transitioning to wood or oak, and finishing with a smooth malty late palate.

Very smooth

A very smooth Assam. Wish it were a bit more bold.

Classic Assam

This strikes me as being just the way a good Assam is supposed to taste. It is malty and works best with milk. There is a touch of honey-like sweetness and a pleasant finish.

Bracing, but best with milk

This came as a sample with my most recent order. This brewed up a dark amber cup. I found it unpleasantly astringent with a sharp bitter characteristic on first taste. A bit of milk smoothed out the harsh notes and let some really pleasant flavors of spice and subtle sweetness shine through.

good

The sample I received brewed up very nicely! Thank you!
