Assam Mangalam

Assam Mangalam

In stock: 6

Origin: India


Our unique black tea is from the Mangalam Estate in the northeastern Indian Assam region, a region which is one of the largest black tea producers in the world! This BOP grade (Broken Orange Pekoe) is unique in both appearance and in flavor. The leaves are broken and then granulated, which provides a dark mahogany infusion with a rich, malty and exquisitely smooth flavor!

This is an ideal bold breakfast tea; these small pellets infuse a delicious and strong cup very quickly! It tastes deliciously malty and is a bold, rich and floral tea with a bright cup and a strong liquor. It's a must for lovers of black tea, and Assam varieties in general! This is a fantastic breakfast tea, or iced tea base, and also makes a wonderful milk tea base!


Loose leaf black tea

The deeply characteristic flavors and fragrance of Assam tea (is that what others call "malty"?) are present and persistent here, but somewhat tamed. The tea brews up very quickly--this works well in fabric/paper tea bags, and might do well in a paper-filter coffee-drip system. But this IS tea--every bit--down to the last drop--and it's quite good. Strong and dark and, even though I over-brewed it a little, it didn't become astringent. Great value for an Assam tea. The granular texture of the leaves made it easy to measure and handle as well.

I have tried many of the premium assams and this tea tasted quite different from them. My first impulse was to bury it in my orange pekoe:-P which I didn't do because I didn't want to change the taste of that tea. I found after a week or so that it did grow on me. I probably won't order it again as I prefer the Ceylon Orange Pekoe. That said, I should try making it with some bottled water rather than the well water. Might make a difference.
