Assam FBOP black loose leaf tea from northeastern India. A robust tea with the malty flavor associated with great breakfast teas to be enjoyed all day. Life is too short to drink bad tea, and here is your solution.
You might ask – what gives Assam 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. 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 FBOP 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.
