A fairly typical Assam of slightly-above-average quality. This was one of four teas we tried on our recent visit to Socra Tea Detroit, a great cafe and tea shop that I recommend checking out if you're in the area.

I've now tried three teas from Tonganagaon estate, a tea garden in upper Assam that seems to produce smoother-than-average Assams that are a bit mellower and softer than the usual "kick you in the face" style of tea.

This tea though was stronger and bolder in flavor than the other two teas I had had from that garden, but still was generally along the same lines.

Aroma was malty and fruity. Full-bodied and moderately astringent but without being too harsh. I'd be happy to drink this tea every day, although it was not my favorite Assam that I've tried recently and didn't jump out at me or wow me.
