Madhuting Estate 2nd Flush
Assam Black Tea
This lovely Indian black tea from the Madhuting Estate is a very well balanced tea that is really versatile. If you're a breakfast tea lover who wouldn't dream of skipping the sugar and milk, this tea has enough robustness to satisfy. But if you're a purist, the malty/sweet balance with a hint of molasses is wonderful all on its own.
