Assam Black Tea

Life is too short to drink bad tea, and here is your solution. Assam black tea from northeastern India.  A robust tea with the malty flavor associated with great breakfast teas to be enjoyed all day.

You might ask – what gives Assam black tea its special characteristics?

The Brahmaputra River dominates the Assam valley, a large, slowly meandering river that has deposited its rich loam over the area, leaving the soil deep and sandy after years of flooding.

Assam has a sweltering and steamy monsoon season. But, equally important, relatively dry and cool winters are perfect conditions for growing the assamica tea bush.

Add all this beauty together, and you get the perfect Assam black tea.  A medium-sized leaf with some golden tips thrown in and brewing a strong color with a slightly spicy malt flavor.

You can add milk to our Assam FBOP and some agave nectar to make a great smooth flavor.  But for the true tea lovers who like a bold cuppa, go for it!  20 to 25 cups of tea can be made from 2 oz of loose leaf tea.

Brewing Instructions for Assam FBOP Black Tea

Use boiling water and allow your Assam Black Tea to steep as little as 3 minutes or as much as 6 minutes. For each of the following steeps, use boiling water and double the steep time.

Assam FBOP Black Tea can be steeped at least 3 times and, depending on the steep times, as many as 5 times.  Also, consider blending the first steep with the following steeps to balance the tea; if you do not want to drink all the tea, store it in the fridge for wonderful iced tea.

Store in a dry place.

    I received this tea as a complimentary addition to my order. Having tried it for the past few days, I can safely say it has an excellent flavour and is the perfect drink to accompany breakfast, or to have at any time of day, (black with a slice of lemon makes a refreshing afternoon drink). 🙂
