Bold black tea from the Assam region of India. Assam tea is known for a deep,
burgundy-red cup and pungent flavor. Our Assam Melody is perfect for tea
drinkers who may be new to the powerful character of Assam. Rich aroma, more
sweet starchy than malty, like roasted plantains. Rounded mouthfeel, malty
without being overpowering. Slight notes of raisin. Brisk astringency and not
extremely pungent. A solid, 'friendly' Assam, from the well-regarded Meleng
1 tsp per cup steep at 212 for 3-5 minutes.
