October 2018: The new lot of Assam House has a finer leaf size and plenty of beautiful golden tips. The flavor is almost identical though it brews a stronger cup because of the small leaf size. If you usually order a large quantity, please consider ordering a smaller amount as tea sales are final!
The state of Assam, India is a huge tea producing region - over 580 million kilograms annually! These black teas are known for their round, malty flavor and dark infusion and this blend is no exception. Because it is a blend of teas, the flavor profile is consistent from year to year. Our Assam Blend is a perfect morning tea, black or with milk and sugar.
