Commercial Description

Similar in character to Assam and Kenyan teas, this Rukeri OP1 is comprised of pretty, young leaves with some tips. Dry leaf aroma is sweet with notes of biscuits and fruit. The liquor is full bodied, malty and lively with delicate astringency. Layered notes of currants, toasted bread and caramel in the finish make for a well-rounded cup.

I got this as a free sample with my last order from Adagio. I've been quite impressed so far. For an inexpensive tea, it has a great complexity of flavor. Overall it has a slight astringency, but not too much. Very typical assam flavor profile with perhaps a bit more of a bite. Not strong astringency, but just a more defined profile. It's hard to explain.
