Assam Tea

Assam tea, speciality teas, buy tea online, tea UK | Imperial Teas

This is the world's largest tea producing area but most of its very best teas are picked at only the height of the season in mid-June and amount to a tiny proportion of its very large crop. With most gardens turning to machine processed cut, tear and curl production, each year these hand made leaf teas are harder to find but well worth the search. The best are rich and malty with a great depth of flavour and aroma of juicy currants or raisins. The larger, tippy leaf teas tend to be smoother with broken leaf teas giving a darker, more brisk infusion. A traditional tea that is ideal with milk. Try it with sugar and its almost a pudding!

  1. Assam Dimakusi Super Strong

    Assam Dimakusi Super Strong

    Our strongest tea is this 'cut, tear and curl' machine-processed Assam which is for our customers who like really dark, heavy tea. It has a doughy note to its aroma with a heavy and spicy taste. It brews very quickly and to a gloriously deep red colour. Established on 15th February 1900 under the Williamson Magor Co. Ltd., this estate owns a vast garden.

  3. Superior Breakfast Tea

    Superior Breakfast Tea

    Chosen by the 'Independent' newspaper as the perfect breakfast tea, it is a hearty but smooth blend of garden Assam tea with lots of golden tips. Blended solely with quality in mind this traditional 'English' tea uses three different leaf styles to deliver a rounded cup with 'Superior' flavour, aroma and appearance. It is the only breakfast tea we offer, believing that no one would want to drink what could only be considered an 'inferior' breakfast tea! This is best appreciated with the addition of full cream milk using one rounded spoon per cup.

  5. Assam Marangi

    Assam Marangi

    This small garden produces arguably the best tasting teas in Assam and this exquisite batch, though not as tippy in appearance as some from Marangi, is no exception. It is creamy, spicy, malty and very smooth, with an attractive fragrance.

  6. Assam Decaffeinated

    Assam Decaffeinated

    Decaffeinated using the safe method of CO2, which also leaves more of the flavour quality in the leaf. Very acceptable on its own but my tip is to add just a few leaves of a very high quality tea to the mix, this improves the flavour significantly whilst adding little to the caffeine levels. Made with a good quality Assam large leaf and safely decaffeinated.

  8. Assam Rhino Valley Gold

    Assam Rhino Valley Gold

    This quality of tea is so difficult to produce that we have had to wait all summer for the garden to collect enough pure golden tips. They have managed to provide us with just 20kgs. Generally, these buds would be blended into a larger lot of tea to improve the appearance and add a sparkle of something special, so it is a real treat and a rare opportunity to try it on its own. It is very smooth, though rich and has a fully malty character. I fear that most of this tea will disappear in house, all in the name of research you understand! Learn More

  9. Assam Rani Summer Gold

    Assam Rani Summer Gold

    This brews a beautiful cup of aromatic liquor offering a fresh smooth brew. The peak of summer picked leaves have a slender clean and even appearance. For those who consider tips as a sign of higher quality this one is a sure exception. This single malt is light in body, balanced in strength and flavor and mellow in briskness. It leaves a wet, thin creamy layer on the tongue. Although it can take milk it is almost unnecessary as there is hardly any pungency. If you want a light body and creamy liquor, this combines both these characteristics.
