DescriptionThe heavyweight champion of breakfast teas, Assam is an essential part of your morning routine.
Palate: Brisk and malty.
High energy and high caffeine.
This organic black tea is blended specifically for strength, and as such is well-suited as a breakfast tea with high release of caffeine and tannins. Because of this, milk is important to soften the bitter notes. This Assam is a popular tea for strong tea drinkers - we make an even stronger, malty custom blend for the Park Hyatt and Grand Hyatt hotels throughout the Middle East.
Assam is one of the primary regions for sourcing strong, dark, black teas - either drunk as blends (to increase boldness and strength) or as a self-drinker (with copious amounts of milk and sugar). Harvested in Northeastern India and known for its full-bodied, malty character, Assam is an essential wake-me-up tea for your first cup of the day. Machine harvesting accounts for the fine-cut leaves which result in a rich, strong infusion.
