Strong Assam

This lowland tea known for its rich aroma and strong, malty flavor is named after its origin, Assam, in North-East India. Dark and copper-colored, it is a full-bodied broken leaf black tea that is great for lovers of a strong morning cup of tea. The rich flavors are accentuated by adding milk and sugar.

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 at growing Chinese tea in Assam, they finally accepted that the Asamese tea plant was much better suited to the local climate...

This is my favourite assam.  I use it to make my Chai Five tea, which is one of my best sellers!

I love this tea! A great pick me up! I like to mix it with lapsang souchong for some smokiness.

One of my favourite teas with milk.  I usually drink Assam Black Decaf but I’m finding a little more of a kick lately.

This is my new favourite tea! So glad to have found it. I grew up on orange pekoe and English breakfast, but they were never strong enough. This is PERFECT - a strong black tea that’s terrific with milk. It’s my new go-to and a great pick-me-up!

This is always one of my go-to teas.  I absolutely love it, and it’s great black, or with a touch of milk.
