Assam Black Tea • The Bold Assam Gold
This Assam Black Tea has a balanced malty, earthy flavour with notes of caramel and cake. It produces a ruby-red brew when steeped in water and a lightly roasted coffee's latte-like brew when made with milk. It gets a gold medal from our tea experts for its rich, sweet aftertaste.
