The attractive, dark leaves of this malty Assam Mangalam tea come from a special variety of the tea plant known to make the best full-bodied teas. Thanks to generous amount of golden tips the well-balanced infusion is full-flavoured, but not overpowering, with a heady aroma and notes of malt and caramel. This tea tastes wonderful without milk but could be taken with a splash of milk or a slice of lemon.
