Assam to go

Very good quality reasonably priced tea. Works for breakfast or midday - just play with amount.

Delicious round full bodied and very smooth

I tried this just to experiment as a change from my usual Portland Breakfast, Lord Bergamot and Masala Chai. I really liked it and just order a few 4oz loose leaf packages. Lovely. Gonna be a regular I think.

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.

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.
