With an exceptional abundance of golden tips, the tea leaves impart an exceptionally strong brew, with the uniquely delicious, malty flavour of Assam teas. Offering a bold, bright liquor this is the perfect flavoursome breakfast tea and is delightful enjoyed with milk.
The state of Assam is the largest tea-growing region in the world. This part of India experiences high precipitation during the monsoon period, with as much as 10 to 12 inches (250-300 mm) of rain per day. The daytime temperature rises to about 103F (40°C), creating greenhouse-like conditions of extreme humidity and heat. This tropical climate contributes to Assam's unique malty taste, a feature for which its teas are well known.
