Big character with a strong, malty flavour. This wonderfully intense Assam tea has a robust character typical of the best Assams. A great breakfast choice which stands up well to a touch of milk.
Taste Notes : Boldly Malty
Origin : India
Ingredients : Indian black tea
Brewing : Use one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per cup and always use freshly boiled water. Allow to brew for 3-5 minutes according to taste, depending on your preference for strength. Enjoy with or without milk.
Details : The Assam tea bush grows in a lowland region, in the valley of the Brahmaputra River; an area of clay soil rich in the nutrients of the floodplain. Along both sides of this river lie the rolling plains of the world's largest tea growing area, along with the highest yield per acre.
The climate varies between a cool, arid winter and a hot, humid rainy season - conditions ideal for growing tea. This tropical climate contributes to Assam's unique malty taste, a feature for which this tea is well known.

I've praised the quality of this particular brew in previous reviews so enough to say it's my go to brew, especially first thing in the morning, so now I shall praise the value for money aspect. If you don't believe me then get Googling but make sure you are comparing like for like. Whatever you are doing there at Tugboat keep it up; great products.
Love this Assam, have been looking for a while for a strong & dark and malty T - this is my staple and my favourite. The Tugboat team have been excellent in their interactions- the taster T and particularly the nice letter are a very much appreciated personal touch.
Great malty taste, blended with some Darjeeling makes perfect cup of tea.. Tugboat always provide great service, very quick delivery and are really helpful. I do like the gift they supply with each order as it gives a chance to try a tea you would not always choose. Last time it was Golden Monkey Tea which has a lovely smokey taste 😋
