Meleng Assam

Hey,

I can't hold out for this year's 2nd flush Assams, so I'm looking for a vendor that still has Meleng in stock.

Does anyone have a reliable source for the high-end FTGFOP tippy Meleng that has been so awesome this past few years?

A few vendors I've never heard of pop up if you google 'Meleng' but i thought i'd ask before I start placing orders...

Who have you used in the past? Have you checked Upton?

Specialteas and tea stop. Those two vendors I can vouch for as carrying awesome Meleng. I haven't ordered from upton before, but I think they were sold out too.

So I used Plymouth.

The Plymouth Meleng is just so-so (i'm spoiled). It will do as a daily tea until this year's 2nd flush tippy Assams, but it's nothing to write home about.
