The kettle has freshly boiled. I need to have patience now for the alchemy of leaves and water to create their magical brew. I choose my cup while am waiting to taste my next infusion of tea from Jeniers. The Indian Tree pattern from a beautiful Anchor china vintage cup catches my eye – a quite perfect complement to this Indian tea.
Tea with Mary Kates review of Assam
The brown & green leaves smell sweet and woody. From the Borengajuli estate, this is a second flush flowery broken orange pekoe (FBOP). It is full bodied and strong with soft malty flavours. A proper cup of tea, it feels sustaining and a real pick me up. Without question, this is a tea that Tea with Mary Kate advises to be taken with milk.
This Scottish based company is looking to provide a quality product and service in the tradition of pioneers like Sir Thomas Lipton. Liquid biscuit in a cup, Assam is one of Tea with Mary Kates favourite teas. My thanks to the lovely team at Jenier for the opportunity to taste their Borengajuli FBOP Assam.
