Another favorite

Portland breakfast has been my favorite tea, but all their teas I have tried I love. This one Assam is a new favorite for me and I have been drinking it more often than the others. The flavor is very rich plus it is also great with steamed milk which I enjoy.

Lovely tasty assam black tea

I have been drinking assam tea since a child, tea time (milk tea with tea sandwiches) was an everyday part of the afternoon in my family. So now, naturally tea became my drink of choice over coffee as an adult - and aftet searching and trying many grocery store brands, none live up to the quality, taste, finish, even effects on the body as THIS smith tea one. I have yet to try an assam straight from the source, but i would bet highly this is one of the finest i have even brewed up to 3 times with one serving, the quality of the leaves is so high, the taste is lovely and delicious!!! Everything one would hope for in a true assam black tea. Also makes the best iced tea imo.

A treat for the pallet and nose

Within a minute of brewing, the scent of this tea is practically as delicious as its taste.

Assam

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.
