Assam Harmony Vs. Assam Melody

Could any of you who like assams tell me what you think the difference is between the two other than the price?

To make it short: Harmony is smoother and more aromatic and has more yellow tips. Melody is a little stronger, has more body and substance. Both go very well with milk, Melody is just a hair better.

I am finishing samples of both right now, drank the last of Melody yesterday and have one more tsp of Harmony in the tin. Still I am undecided which of them to reorder - both are beautiful teas. I may just have to get both.

Hmm...ordered a bunch of samples, which I received last Thursday and I am slowly working my way through them. I received both Assam Harmony and Melody and I have tried the Harmony. While I did enjoy it, it didn't have the depth and complexity of the Assam that I am used to (I've been ordering Assam from the same seller for more than 10 years now). I'm happy to hear that the Melody might be a bit more robust. I'll give that one a try tomorrow morning.
