Review of Assam Mokalbari Second Flush

9 of 105 of 55 of 592 of 100

Half-litre pot at home, made from a sample included in the tea company's Advent Tea Calendar (2020) and consisting of fine, wiry leaves of Assam tea in all shades of brown. Pours clear dark copper brown (against white china) with no sediment. Clear aroma of Assam leaves, quite malty but not aggressive at all. Intense, leafy flavour with malty notes and spicy touches. Astringent palate with a leafy aftertaste. A very nice Assam: tasty and somewhat spicy but definitely not an inch beyond what is delicious. It comes at a very affordable price, too, given the context (ca. €0.42 per 1 sample in the collection). I might consider buying a regular portion one day but these tend to be rather expensive, starting at €11.50 per 100 g (!)
