Assam Tea

Assam Tea | 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 Assam tea is 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!

The Superior Breakfast Tea is among our bestsellers, whilst the Assam Dimakusi Super Strong packs a punch! Whatever your tastes, we hope you find the Assam tea that's perfect for you.

  1. Assam Dimakusi Super Strong Black Tea

    Assam Dimakusi Super Strong Black Tea

    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 English Breakfast Black 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. Learn More

  4. Assam Itakhuli RJ Special Black Tea

    Assam Itakhuli RJ Special Black Tea

    This very distinctive tea grown in the renowned Itakhooli garden is made from a clonal bush known as K1. It is unique for its natural hint of fresh raspberry flavour and aroma. When taken builder's style with creamy milk and two sugars, it is almost like having a scone, cream and jam! One of my favourite teas of the year for breakfast toast and jam or afternoon tea accompaniment. It has a beautiful tippy appearance which helps to deliver a rich, sappy infusion that is very smooth.

  6. Assam Decaffeinated

    Assam Decaffeinated Black Tea

    This decaffeinated-tea makes a very authentic cup of tea. 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. Learn More

  7. Assam 'Summer Gold' Rani Garden

    Assam Rani Summer Gold Black Tea

    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.
