Malty with a jammy-like flavor best describes this premium tea. The tea is vacuum-packed at the estate capturing the pungent 2nd flush flavor at its peak.
I know this isn’t a Holiday-Related Tea Post…but…I like this tea and really want to share it with you all today! It’s Assam Borengajuli from Culinary Teas…a strong and sturdy black tea!
When I first smelled the dry leaves I was thinking it smelled a little like those Raisins in the lil red boxes…a different yet welcomed aroma.
Post infusion it smells like bakey black tea. A hefty Assam, indeed!
The taste is a BOLD black tea taste a little sweet at first but then turns a bit jammy.
I did try a 2nd infusion on this, too, and it was quite nice! It was much smoother the 2nd time around and was more fruit-like. It bet it would go great with toast! YUM!
