Description
 
Assams give us the traditional, full-bodied brews many of us associate with tea.  This black tea has a rich malty taste, with a caramel-like sweetness. An excellent cuppa!

Assam teas are low grown and come from a local indigenous tea variety, Camellia Sinensis Assamica.  Assamica is cousin to the Chinese variety grown around the world, and has much bigger, broader leaves.  Assams are not usually associated with harvesting seasons like Darjeelings, but we can tell you this tea was picked in the late summer from the east side of the garden. Mokalbari Tea Estate was started in 1917, and has expanded rapidly from its initial 42 acres.  We favor the orthodox tea as it gives a sweeter brew.  

Handles milk and sugar well, or delicious on its own.
