Description: This hearty Assam tea has a bold character with malty notes. Although the robust cup is excellent with milk, it is smooth enough to be enjoyed plain. Sweet notes emerge in the finish, especially with the addition of milk.

"This selection is absolutely gorgeous with milk. (a remarkable contrast to the TA50 Meleng which is so lovely taken plain but not right with milk.) 6 stars for value. Get it while it lasts!" Markus

"Smallish leaves. Fruity, lightly malty with a sweet finish. Not the strongest Assam out there, but good quality for the price." Richard Vroon

"Refined & rich tasting, with fruity and malty edges. If you add milk as I do, add it sparingly - too much and you muffle those distinctive edges."
