Description

A bold and strong organic Assam loose leaf tea from the century old Banaspaty Estate in India.

Assam (Assamese: অসম, Hindi: आसाम, and also Hindi: असम) is a black tea named after the region of its production, Assam, in India. Assam tea (Assamese: অসমীয়া চাহ, Hindi: असमिया चाय) is manufactured specifically from the plant Camellia sinensis var. assamica. This tea, most of which is grown at or near sea level, is known for its body, briskness, malty flavor, and strong, bright color.

The state of Assam is the world’s largest tea-growing region, lying on either side of the Brahmaputra River, and bordering Bangladesh and Burma (Myanmar). This part of India experiences high precipitation; during the monsoon period, 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 this tea is well known.

    The organic Assam Banaspaty Estate has been a favorite breakfast tea of mine for many years. I enjoy the malty notes and how they enhance the taste of the mildly sweet treats I eat for breakfast. It gives me energy and a satisfying after taste.

    I just tried this yesterday and was surprised how much I liked it. It’s strong but also more complex than other Assam tea I’ve had. I had extra, so saved some in the refrigerator. Tried it cold, and it was very good as iced tea, too, although not what one usually has for iced tea. I think this may become my go-to breakfast tea.

    The black tea is one of my favorite breakfast teas. I enjoy it with sweet treats (it enhances the flavor of granola and breakfast bars) and find the aftertaste very pleasant. It provides an energy boost without the slump that coffee typically induces.
