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. Superior English Breakfast Black 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

  3. Assam Rasbhari Jaam Black Tea

    Assam Rasbhari Jaam 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.

    Assam Tonganagoan Golden Axe Black Tea

    The Tonganagoan estate is a small tea garden located near the Namdapha National Park, one of the most bio-diverse areas of India. It is one of the very few organic gardens in Assam who are able to produce high-quality tea due to it planting the famous clonal variety P126 tea bush. This tea type is used in all of Assam’s top gardens. The many golden tipped leaves lend this tea a very smooth character that along with the malty, jammy fruit notes has a strong sweet-chocolate aroma with hints of spice.

  8. Assam Mangalam Gold Black Tea

    Assam Mangalam Gold Black Tea

    The Mangalam garden consistently produces teas of the highest quality and their best lots each year, though few in number will give a rich, ripe infusion with characteristics of malt, molasses and dried fruit with a fine body. The abundant golden tips help to add a silky, spicy quality and give the liquor a golden ring around the top of the dark amber colour as the tea cools. An indicator of true quality when we evaluate teas in our tasting room. Learn More
