A robust black tea from the organic Hathikuli estate in Assam, India, this tippy whole leaf assamica has a high proportion of buds to leaves. An excellent single variety breakfast tea, Hathikuli Assam is perfect for lovers of full flavor, high caffeine, and bold tannins. The preservation of whole leaves, rather than the use of harsher cutting methods employed widely in the region, means low astringency and smoothness in an otherwise bold steep. A great way to start the day, especially for those going through a coffee uncoupling.
2nd Flush, 2019, TGFOP, for the fellow tea geeks.
