SKU: BM31/ASB050 Category: Tags: ,


Assam tea is a black tea from the Indian state of Assam, known for its strong, malty flavour and deep colour. It is often used in breakfast blends, as it is a good source of caffeine and can help to wake you up in the morning.

Assam tea is made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant, where the leaves are picked and then processed using a method called “orthodox processing.” This process involves withering the leaves, rolling them, and then oxidising them. It is this oxidation process that gives Assam tea its characteristic flavour and colour.

Assam tea is a versatile tea that can be enjoyed in many different ways such as in both hot and iced tea.
