Assam (TGFOB) (Organic Estate Black Tea)
This beautiful Estate tea is grown in tea gardens in the Assam region of India. The tropical climate of the Assam region contributes to the tea's unique malty taste and its bold, lively flavour.
This beautiful tea is the prized 2nd flush Assam tea which is sweeter, more full-bodied and considered superior to the first flush tea. It is 'tippy', named thus for the gold tips that appear on the leaves. Like all of my teas it is certified organic (by Pro-Cert Organic Systems). It is also Certified Fair Trade.
It brews up with a strong, bright colour that is perfect any time of day. It's wonderful on its own, but also takes milk, sweetener, lemon or mint beautifully. Looking for a good tea for making your own Chai? Look no further! This Assam is definitely bold enough stand up to the spicy chai flavours!

I am very proud to offer completely biodegradable and compostable zip pouches. They provide a high barrier protection against air, moisture and light (which all can decrease the quality and freshness of your tea) and will keep your tea fresh for approximately 2 years.
