Its OK"The flavor is fruity, with notes of grape and raspberry, and an acidic, citrusy aftertaste. Fortunately, there’s almost no bitterness. There’s not a lot of body, but there is a nice, malty richness."

Culinary Teas is an online retailer based in Milford, Indiana that offers quite a large selection of different types of tea. Their website calls Bukhial “the best estate in Assam” – certainly a subjective statement. I’ll try not to let it sway me.

Brewed with near-boiling water for three and a half minutes, the tea gives off a pleasant aroma of blackcurrant, fairly typical for an Assam. The flavor is fruity, with notes of grape and raspberry, and an acidic, citrusy aftertaste. Fortunately, there’s almost no bitterness. There’s not a lot of body, but there is a nice, malty richness. A second brew was dull and flat – not really worth it.

Compared to other Assams, I would say this one is slightly better than average. It’s not remarkable in any way, but has a balanced flavor that makes it a good choice for a breakfast tea. At $7.40 per 4 oz., it’s also very affordable. Based on this particular tea, I’ll go ahead and say that Bukhial may not be the best estate in Assam, but they do know how to make a satisfying tea.
