A bold and invigorating Assam tea, making it an ideal choice for your morning cup. The robust flavors unfold on your palate, starting with pronounced malty notes that gradually intensify as you sip along.

As you delve deeper into the brew, delightful accents of sweet date palm intertwine with subtle hints of cocoa, creating a unique texture in the liquor.

Good but not malty

This is a good, basic Assam. Be careful not to over steep less it becomes bitter. This '23 batch isn't particularly malty.

Gorgeous Assam

Gorgeous Assam!

Lovely dark leaves with plenty of golden tips. A beautiful deep copper liquor and an exceptionally smooth and malty tea with plenty of sweetness. Not "furry" in the mouthfeel like some Assams can be. No bitterness with a 5-minute steep at 90C. If Assam tea could be silk, it would be this summer's Doomni Gold.

This tea is deep...

This tea is deep copper red. It takes sugar and a small dollop of cream to drink English style. Reminds me of the tea I drank as a small child. I have yet to order a tea from Teabox that I haven't loved!

First class Assam

A rich warm, nourishing tea that quickly calls out for a second cup. I take no sugar in my tea but the natural sweetness was pleasing and smooth. this tea is perfect now but I am looking forward to having it on a cold winter's morning. Thanx Teabox for yet another fabulous treat! Five stars without a doubt.

A very high quality tea.

I considered this tea one of my favorite high quality black teas.
When you look at the loose leaf when it is not steeped then you will notice the gold tips a sure sign of high quality.
The flavor was also one of my favorites because it had a very smooth body.

Wonderful, strong, Assam morning tea.

Been a connoisseur of Indian tea for over 20 years. The freshness of this Assam is wonderfully evident as soon as the package is opened. The aroma immediately hits you, smells of honey and dates.
Tea is malty and tastes of honey. Beautiful red color. Like all Assams, be careful not to brew to long, or it will easily become bitter and astringent.
