Tea Story

This Extra Special FTGFOP1 grade black tea is from the revered Mangalam estate in Assam region. This loose leaf tea is a perfect example of the beautifully made authentic Assam black tea with large leaves and an abundance of golden tips. The flavour is deliciously malty, rich and spicy and gives a dark amber infusion. A great breakfast tea, the brew can be enjoyed with milk and sugar per your personal preference. Assam tea , most of which is grown at or near sea level, is known for its body, briskness, malty flavor, and strong, bright color. Assam teas, or blends containing Assam, makes a great "breakfast" tea.


The state of Assam is the largest tea-growing region in the world. This part of India experiences high precipitation during the monsoon period, with as much as 10 to 12 inches (250-300 mm) of rain per day. The daytime temperature rises to about 103F (40°C), creating greenhouse-like conditions of extreme humidity and heat. This tropical climate contributes to Assam's unique malty taste, a feature for which its teas are well known.

I ordered this tea some weeks ago. I love it a lot for my weekends tea time. I sent some of this tea to my family in the canary islands, and they love it too. This tea is from now in my repertory of favourite teas.
