ASSAM BLACK GOLD

Tea type: black tea

Brand: Mittal Tea

How to prepare it: 3 to 4 minutes, 90/95 °C (195/203 °F)


Dry scent:

Really aromatic, fresh with a "fizzy touch" already at the beginning. There are extremely strong woody notes bounded together with a malty sweetness like no others. Then it goes through liquorice - liquorice root - still with such background sweetness.


Liquor's colour:

Bright brown.


Liquor's scent:

Huge malty notes and woody ones -

liquorice in particular -.


Taste:

Truly full-bodied and thick, but never bitter. At first it's almost light for being an Assam's tea, but then, slowly, all its powerfulness arises, showing huge woody notes, especially liquorice, and also a few tannins (but never bitter or annoying: on the contraury they give body to the infusion). It also present a malty background sweetness, like its "liquid" scent, which balances its woody side, adding complexity and making the tea

even more enjoyable.



Conclusion:

Really a good black tea - one of my favourites Assam teas now - with strong woody notes and really full-bodied. It's strong yes, but still gentle and never sickly.

My score is 8.6/10.
