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.

  1. Excellent all-around black tea 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Feb 2018

    Hard to over-steep, honest, simple, economic black tea. Lower caffeine content than a good strong cup of puer so I could see it being enjoyed in the afternoon, but I don't as I'm sensitive and would be up all night drinking anything with caffeine past 2p.m. Excellent buy.

  2. Rich, full-bodied 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Dec 2017

    My first cup of this Assam tea bowled me over. It has a very rich mouthfeel, full-bodied and satisfying. It holds milk and agave well for an excellent cup of tea. Sadly these days unflavored black teas are out of fashion in restaurants and homes. But to me this is the real deal.

  3. Great black tea 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Feb 2017

    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

  4. Floral, malty fantasticness 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Jul 2016

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

  5. Great black tea. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Jul 2015

    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.

  6. Ice tea 4 Star Review
