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.
