assam

Assam teas come from the Assam valley in northeast India along the banks of the Brahmaputra River and are prized for their heartiness and malty flavor.

Breakfast Assam

Breakfast Assam

4 oz. $5.99

This is a great everyday Assam, very hearty and malty, but with a nice clean taste. This tea is our first choice for using as a base tea for Chai.

Strong Assam

Strong Assam

4 oz. $8.59

Definitely meant to wake you up! It has a pronounced deep malty flavor that stands up well to milk and sugar.

TeaSource Assam, TGFOP

TeaSource Assam, TGFOP

4 oz. $5.97

This is a classic whole leaf (TGFOP) Assam black tea. The dry leaf yields a good percentage of golden tips and has a slightly sweet malty aroma. Rather shockingly, we recommend steeping this tea at 8-9 minutes; it comes out very full-bodied, smooth, rich, malty, with just the tiniest bit of a bright note.

Jaipur Estate, SFTGFOP1

Jaipur Estate, SFTGFOP1

4 oz. $14.49

This tea steeps up a very smooth, balanced cup: excellent weight/mouth feel, nice maltiness, hint of a sweet/spicy note, not an overwhelmingly strong cup -- but a phenomenally satisfying one. This is the iron fist in a velvet glove.
