From the Assam Valley of North-East India comes this medium-bodied Asamese tea, organically grown among tribal communities. This fine grade of tea consists of young tea buds blended with the uppermost leaves of the tea plant and its flowers, supplementing its rich aroma. This dark copper-colored tea goes well with milk and sugar and is a good morning tea.
Story, Folklore, History...
The Story of Assamese Tea:Tea plants native to India were actually first publicly discovered in Assam in 1834, during the British occupation of India. Interestingly, since the British were more familiar with the well-established Chinese tea plant, they attempted to import it and plant it in Assam, assuming that the native tea plant would not be as robust. After numerous failed attempts, they finally accepted that the Asamese tea plant was much better suited to the local climate.

This tea has a great substantial body with a soft, almost creamy aroma and a very slight briskness.
