Second Flush Assam typifies the best qualities that this particular type of Indian tea has to offer. The full-bodied maltiness and rich pungency of an Assam is even more pronounced in this season. Teas from the Assam tend to be higher in natural tannins and therefore are more astringent and have a 'thick' nose. These attributes are highly desirable characters and this particular selection from the Gingia Estate is very rich example - to the point of distinction. This tea was one of the best we have seen from the Assam. It is a self-drinker and has enough flavor and character to hold its own, even with milk and sugar.
