Made my 2nd pot of Tonganagaon this morning. It's a clean, non-comlex tea. I don't taste as much of the smoky assam flavor as in other assams I've tried. Medium astringency. If you're looking for a tea with more robust flavors, this isn't the tea for you. If you want a nice clean cup with just enough assam kick to differentiate it from your mass produced teas, this is perfect.
