What’s better than a dark, malty, richly-satisfying cup of Indian tea?
Believe it or not, this is a very popular black tea for us! Whether drunk black and straight up, diluted with milk, cream, or half-and-half, sweetened, ‘spiced’ or not, this is a malty, deeply-flavorful, and satisfying cup of tea.
Many of our clients use Tea Trekker’s Assam Monkhooshi black tea as a base tea, into which they blend fine-cut or powdered spices, to create their own, personalized, quick-steeping chai.
Part of Monkhooshi’s charm is that quick-steeping ability, so for that ‘on the way out the door‘ when in a hurry (or if you simply enjoy the style it produces) this fine-cut leaf is modern Assam tea at its flavorful best. Monkhooshi has a bright, malty and rich flavor, classically northern Indian. Not likely to encourage second steeping or much in the way of finesse or subtlety, Monkhooshi is for the straight-ahead looking tea drinker. If you enjoy a tea that bares its soul fully and completely right from the start, then this Assam tea is for you.
Note that it is very finely cut so will steep quickly and pass through many strainers and teapot ‘cages’.
