Assam is one of the primary tea-growing areas in India, and is home to the indigenous camellia sinensis var. assamica plant. Unlike its Chinese cousin, this tea plant has much larger leaves - making it perfect for black tea!
Our classic Assam black tea is everything that you're looking for. A rarity in the Assamese tea industry, these leaves are full, unbroken, and handcrafted in the 'orthodox' way.
This results in a flavour profile which is deep, bold, brisk, and slightly malty... and is sure to become a family favourite!
For all the Brits out there - this tea also goes well with milk ;)
