Marangi Estate TFBOP Assam

A full complement of golden tips gives this broken-leaf Assam selection a beautiful dry leaf appearance. Both the aroma and flavor show the pronounced malty character of a classic Assam tea. The thick cocoa-like mouth feel may be enhanced by adding a splash of milk and a spoonful of honey. A crisp, clean finish completes a perfect tea experience.

Not as good as other quality Assams
BARBARA – NM – January 15, 2020

I waivered on whether this was a 2 star or 3 star tea. It's not bad, but for me, it's certainly not good enough to order again. It has basic Assam qualities, but nothing at all that makes it pleasurable for me. Right now I am mixing it 1/3 : 2/3 with a good Assam so I can use it up, yet still enjoy a cup that I like.

Broken requires care

This broken leaf tea can become extremely, extremely bitter and tannic with longer steeps and hot water, so be careful and pay attention. When given short steeps (20-25 sec before pouring, repeat 1x) with 195°F water, it is a nice sweet Assam. I'm sure it could be dialed in a little further. But definitely don't steep it like it was a whole leaf tea.

Really delicious

This is my current favorite breakfast tea. I prefer Assam teas in the morning (mornings are usually chilly and foggy year round where I live) and this is a robust but nuanced cup.
