Highly regarded by connoisseurs and casual tea drinkers alike, this tea is produced in the largest growing region in Northern India, Assam. This area of tea plantations has the perfect climate of rain and altitude that allow this iconic black tea to thrive each growing season.
Its pungent liquor brews to a dark-reddish color, leaving a full-bodied cup with a malty taste that is truly unique. Assam takes well to milk and sugar, however this robust style of tea tastes great brewed up and served as is.
Brewing Tips: Assam loose tea should be made with cold, filtered water that has been brought to a rolling boil (205-212° F). Using one rounded teaspoon of loose tea or one teabag for each cup required, pour the boiling water over the tea leaves. Assam tea should be steeped for 4-5 minutes. Once the ideal brewing time has been reached, the leaves should be removed to prevent further steeping. Decant and enjoy!
