2018 Bootlegger Black - Dark & Malty Assam Black
Khongea Estate — Sivasagar, Assam, India
A black tea for the hardy, rough-cut folk, bound to keep you up for long jobs. One of our best-selling black teas, you can't disagree with a good assam black, and we have the best one for a most reasonable price. Sourced from the Khongea Estate, this black has rich malty notes and a smooth dark body with a medium-light overall astringency level. Very pleasant, needs no milk or sugar, but certainly won't say no to either!
