One of S•TEA•P’s Michigan Inspired flavors, Superior Blend is an Assam tea blend from the well-regarded Meleng Estate in India.
Assam tea is known for a deep, burgundy-red liquor and pungent flavor. This Superior Blend is perfect for tea drinkers who may be new to the powerful character of Assam. This bold, black tea brews more of a sweet starchy than malty cup, like roasted plantains with notes of raisins. This tea provides a rounded mouthfeel, brisk astringency, and rich aroma. It is malty without being overpowering. A solid, 'friendly' Assam.
Use 1 tsp of tea leaves (2-3 grams) per 8 oz. of water, 200-210 F.
steep for 3-5 minutes.
