Absolutely Delicious!

This Assam has replaced my previous 'morning cup' of Irish Breakfast. It has a smooth, rich flavour and just the mind-boost I need!

Blend Numerology

Steve Smith's birth year and number of times he spent per day looking for his glasses.


For best flavor, bring spring or freshly drawn filtered water to a boil (212 degrees). Steep 1 rounded tsp (3 g) loose leaf for five minutes. A good time to practice the guitar.

Indian Black Tea

Assam tea is the biggest, brightest, richest and most astringent tea made. It is the backbone to breakfast style teas of nearly all brand and quality although it is also used in many blends for body and top notes. Assam is less floral and has more bread or biscuit-like flavor than other origins, and is often described as malty or coppery.

Assam Region

The Assam region is located in Northeast India, and borders Bhutan and Bangladesh. At near sea level, this region produces teas that are full flavored, rich, and chewy with distinct characteristics of caramel and malt. The best teas from this region are plucked and processed in June and July, a harvest also known as the 2nd Flush.
