assam melody

assam melody

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 Estate.

Steep at 212° for 3-5 minutes.

fresh from origin

Assam is the world's largest tea-growing region, lying on either side of the Brahmaputra River, and bordering Bangladesh and Burma (Myanmar). Assam has a tropical climate, heavily influenced by the monsoons and without the normal hot and dry season found in the rest of India. In the warmest month, the temperature is in the mid to upper 80's, while in January, low 60's are the norm. The most prized Assams are the second flush teas, coming right before the monsoons, with a rich, spicy and malty flavor. Teas harvested during and right after the rainy season tend to be softer and more floral in character.
