ASSAM MANGALAM TEA — SINGLE ESTATE FTGFOP1 LOOSE LEAF
From the pristine Mangalam estate in Assam comes this delicious tea that’s equal parts malty and fresh. Specifically, the proliferation of golden tips in Assam Mangalam FTGFOP1 gives this loose leaf tea its sparkling aftertaste. In turn, the spring-harvested Assam base carries a dark richness that’s beautifully complex in flavour. This is not surprising given Mangalam is one of the most outstanding and reputable gardens in India! While this infusion is a full-bodied tea, we believe it tastes best without milk or sugar.
This Assam also boasts an FTGFOP1 grading, which stands for ‘Fine Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe – First Flush’. If you want to learn more about the quality this grading denotes, check out our ‘What The FTGFOP is Orange Pekoe’ Tea Journal entry here. As a strong black tea of the assamica variety, sippers can also delight in the caffeine boost this brew provides. Therefore, this Assam is best sipped first thing in the morning or when you’re facing the afternoon slump!
Just starting on your tea journey with us? In that case, we would recommend acquainting yourself with our maltier Assams like Dimakusi or Dhelakat first! Alternatively, seasoned Assam sippers will also love adding the likes of Hajua and Joonktollee to their tea collections!
