Description

The Assam region of Northeast India is famous for its black tea production. The sub-tropical valleys of Assam in which tea is cultivated yield gutsy, bold infusions with full body and flavor. Our single estate Golden Assam is from orthodox manufacture and has an abundance of even grade leaves and golden buds.


Tasting Notes

Robust and bright with hints of sweet raisin and an assertive malty finish

Everyday Brewing

Water to Leaf Ratio
1 tbsp (4g) per 8 oz of water
Water Temperature
200°F
Steep Time
4 minutes

Traditional Brewing

Water Temperature: 200°F
Leaf to Water Ratio: 1 tablespoon per 8 ounces
Steep Time: 4 minutes (1st infusion), 5 minutes (2nd infusion)

We encourage you to experiment with the quantity of tea leaves and the length of the steep time to find your desired brew strength. Varying the water temperature isn't recommended, as water that is too hot will over-extract the bitter components of tea, while water that is too cool might not fully draw out the aromas and flavors of tea.

Ingredients

Organic and Fair Trade Certified™ black tea.

Origin

Assam
