After the previously disappointing Orangjuli, I tried another Assam from the same supplier and what a world of difference here.

This is a lovely combination of dry leaf and tips with a good mixture of both as you can see above, the dry leaf in the base of the pot. Brewing with water just off the boil for four minutes produced the lovely colours you can see below.

This is a real delight for an Assam tea with very little astringency but still containing enough of a whallop that you would associate with teas from this part of India. Taste wise it is lovely, the real flavour that came through for me was like a dark treacle and bonfire toffee taste which works really well.

I really loved this tea, one of my better Assams by a long way. Try it for yourself.
