Assam Marangi Second Flush Loose Leaf Black Tea
Generous malted notes of barley and an ale-like fruity depth lead the way, reinforced by a cast of notes ranging from caramel to Brazil nuts. Astringency in just the right measure ensures balance on your palate. An indisputable, unforgettable tour de force.
Preparation: One heaping teaspoon per 8oz cup of filtered, boiling water. Allow to brew 3 minutes.

The Marangi second flush Assam tea offered here is indeed exceptional. It yields a relatively dark brew which translates into a richness of flavor rather than harshness. As it cools the flavor becomes softer and more nuanced. Aroma is quite wonderful.
