Description: A flavorful and aromatic choice with a dark copper-brown, full-bodied cup. The malty tone and wonderful fruity notes add to the complexity of the aroma and flavor. We valued this tea as one of the best broken-leaf Assams in this price range.

"Very strong indeed, this is a good one if you're adding milk. A cold water rinse prior to brewing flushes out most of the dustiness for a cleaner cup."
