loose leaf Assam black tea

Meleng Estate GBOP (2020 OR-430) Assam

Producing premium teas since 1856, the Meleng Estate is one of the oldest tea gardens in Assam. Decorated with an abundance of golden tips, the dark brown leaves of this 2020 selection produce a deep copper liquor fragrant with notes of malt and whispers of red wine and sweet almond. The robust cup offers a smooth, rich complexity with notes of malt and cocoa, complemented by a stone fruit sweetness and warm toasty hints. The lively finish is long and lingering. Excellent with milk.
