assam melody

Assam Melody is a bold black tea from the Assam region of India. Assam black tea is known for a deep, burgundy-red cup and pungent flavour. Our Assam Melody is perfect for tea drinkers who may be new to the powerful character of an Assam. Rich aroma, more sweet starchy than malty, like roasted plantains. Rounded mouthfeel, malty without being overpowering. Slight notes of raisin. Brisk astringency and not extremely pungent. A solid, 'friendly' variety of Assam, from the well-regarded Meleng Estate.

fresh from origin

Assam is the world's largest tea-growing region, lying on either side of the Brahmaputra River, and bordering Bangladesh and Burma (Myanmar). Assam has a tropical climate, heavily influenced by the monsoons and without the normal hot and dry season found in the rest of India. In the warmest month, the temperature is around 30ºC, while in January, roughly 15ºC is the norm. The most prised Assams are the second flush teas, coming right before the monsoons, with a rich, spicy and malty flavour. Teas harvested during and right after the rainy season tend to be softer and more floral in character.
