Mangalam Estate FBOP (2020 OR-284) Assam

In this 2020 selection from the Mangalam Estate, a sprinkling of downy golden tips threads through the dark brown leaves, producing a strong, rich cup with a sweet, malty fragrance hinting of carob. The deep copper liquor reveals pronounced malty flavor with a chocolate thickness and dark sugar sweetness. A pleasant astringency plays at the edges of the palate, leading to a smooth, lingering finish.
