type: black

origin: india

region: assam

variety: assam

ingredients: black tea

caffeine: strong

price level: $$$$

Bold, powerful black tea from the Assam region of India. A deep, burgundy-red cup and roasted grain aroma, malty rich flavor with notes of raisins. Pungent but smooth astringency, making this tea an ideal cup to pair with milk and sugar. This outstanding Assam comes from a favorite garden of ours, Mangalam Estate. Steep at 212°F for 3-5 minutes

      Really nice, smooth black tea. Malty and rich without any bitterness.

      I have tried the assam melody already and found it very lovely. I drink my teas with no milk or sugar. This one is a little less malty and more like the orange pekoe I'm used to, but much richer! It tastes more chocolatey than raisiny as the description suggests. This is definitely a very nice high-quality black tea that I would eagerly drink again.

      I much prefer Adgaio's cheaper Assam, Assam Melody. This one is a little too honeyed for me. I didn't take any sugar in mine but if I did it would've been too sweet for me.

      Found that this tea did not turn bitter when steeped. I usually need sugar in my black teas but found this tea to be perfect on its own with no sugar, cream or lemon required.

      An outstanding, bold tea. The maltiness is a lovely partner for milk and sugar, making it a perfect morning tea.

      This tea is fine. I enjoy black tea in the morning for the caffeine, so I was excited to try this tea. However, I did taste any of the flavors Adagio described. I added cream and sugar as was recommended and I wonder if that overwhelmed the other flavors. In the end, I didn't feel like this tea was special enough for me to want to order any more.

      This is really a classic Assam black tea. But I didn’t notice the declared notes of roasted plantains, molasses, dates and pleasantly malty in the flavor.

      This is a great tea for when I need an energy boost in the afternoon!

      The tea leaves had a light scent of earthy dew and moss. On the tongue this tasted quite sweet but also acidic. The aftertaste is short and carries flavors of molasses and maple syrup. I would have enjoyed this tea if not for the strong acidic notes that put me off.

      This one had a good flavor. Tasty with cream and sugar.

      Yummy Assam tea. Great with milk and boba. This makes really great milk tea with its rich and bold flavor

      This tea is fantastic. The only one I like better as far as straight black teas go is Assam Melody.

      Good tea, as I favor Assam teas, but I actually enjoyed Assam Melody better.

      One of my favorite teas! Happy that I was able to try a sample, but would definitely purchase a larger quantity in the future. Great flavor and color!

      Wonderful tea if you brew it just right... it can be strong

      Really zen, non-astringent tea. A go to of mine, though I do prefer Assam Melody, but only just.

      A very mellow black tea, absolutely delicious, smooth flavor

      Very nice! A mellow black tea that goes great without any additions.
