This is a terrific rich tea with full body and very rounded mouth feel. It's from one of the most recognized tea estates in the Assam region of India, home to over 800 tea gardens. We fly in two chests of this tea three times each year. Brew a minute longer and add milk for a delicious, comforting breakfast tea.
Our resident tea blender starts off his day with this tea. How's that for an endorsement!

Out of the teas I have tried so far from Elmwood Inn, this is by far my favorite black tea. The tea has a very bold and rich dark amber color, and a malty, but clean taste. The tea has a slight astringency to it, which makes the tea all that much better. Add a little bit of sugar, and a very light splash of milk and you have yourself the perfect morning beverage.
This tea also makes for a great tea in the afternoon when things start to slow down at the office. All in all this tea is perfect, and I can't wait to order more.
