Assam Soongachi

A nice tea overall but definitely not as strong (I like really strong tea) as Assam Namdang that another provider offers.

Assam "Soongachi" Cut Torn Curled

This is the tea that got me sipping stronger black teas. I started with a sample pack and with the first sip I was in love. Definitely needs a splash of milk (and I like adding honey too), but I find this tea hugely satisfying as I start my day. A favourite.

Assam "Soongachi" Cut Torn Curled

I'm not typically a strong tea fan and always have mine black but I tried a sample bag and this was a very tasty tea. Love the opportunity to try samples!

I love strong teas. And this Assam is one of my favorites. Perfect with or without milk for me.
