When brewed, our Assam yields a red liquor with a rich aroma and a strong, malty-round taste - perfect for breakfast. The tea is a second flush harvested in the Assam region of Northern India. The hearty, malty flavor goes well with milk.

Supporting adults with disabilities
Silk Road Teas is more than just tea. We are committed to giving back to our community by providing jobs packaging our teas to disabled adults. As the older brother of a disabled person, Ned Heagerty, Silk Road Teas President, recognized the challenges and limited opportunities disabled adults face. So he wanted to make a difference. It is a small step, but it is an action we believe in and will continue to follow. Recently, we were honored by receiving the Employer of the Year Award from Integrated Community Services (ICS) for our commitment to employ persons with disabilities.

The Silk Road Teas Story
Great black tea

I love just pure black tea with milk that has just enough flavor to make it interesting. This is a great substitute for English Breakfast tea. I love it and drink it every day a couple of times. It has a high enough doze of caffeine
Floral, malty fantasticness

This assam is lovely. Its not as thick and earthy as some I've had but its very flavorful and oh-so-drinkable.
and so happy it's organic.
Great black tea.

This tea is good anytime through the day for me. I like it both hot and iced, sweetened with a bit of honey (local, not the store bought kind) and sometimes half & half. Some people like it with plain milk and it's fine that way too.
