Produced on the bank of the Brahmaputra River in the Assam Valley of North East India, this Assam tea offers a quintessentially British experience with an exotic twist. Known for its large, bold leaves and deep, full-bodied liquor, this tea provides a well-rounded, traditionally malty flavour that is both invigorating and comforting. It's a cuppa that transports you to the lush tea gardens of Assam, promising a brew that is as authentic as it is delicious.

The Blend

This tea is a single-origin blend, sourced exclusively from the Assam Valley, a region renowned for its rich, malty teas. The large and bold leaves are a testament to the fertile soils and unique climate of the area, factors that contribute to the tea's distinctive flavour profile.

Leaf Quality

The quality of the leaf in this blend is truly exceptional. The leaves are large, bold, and impeccably processed, promising a brew that is deep and full-bodied. The leaf is a rich, dark hue, indicative of its robust character and depth of flavour.

Liquor Characteristics

Upon brewing, the liquor turns a deep, rich colour, exuding a malty aroma that is both inviting and comforting. The flavour is well-rounded, with a traditionally malty profile that is characteristic of Assam teas. Each sip leaves a lingering, satisfying aftertaste, making it a perfect choice for those who appreciate the finer things in life.

Brewing Instructions

  1. Boil freshly drawn water to 100°C.
  2. Add one teaspoon of the Assam tea to a teapot or infuser.
  3. Pour the boiling water over the tea leaves.
  4. Allow the tea to steep for 3-5 minutes, depending on your taste preference.
  5. Strain the tea into a cup and savour the deep, malty notes. Optionally, you can add a splash of milk or a spoonful of sugar to enhance the flavour.

Perfect Pairings

This Assam tea pairs exceptionally well with a variety of British delicacies. Its robust, malty flavour complements hearty foods like a traditional English breakfast, meat pies, or even a roast dinner. It's also an excellent choice for afternoon tea, pairing well with scones, clotted cream, and jam.

Health Benefits

In addition to its delightful taste, Assam tea is rich in antioxidants, which can help reduce the risk of chronic diseases. It also contains a moderate amount of caffeine, making it a suitable choice for a morning or midday pick-me-up.
