Assam Tea

This district in Northern India is the source of some of the finest black and British style teas; pure Assam tea is the classic Irish Breakfast tea. Assams are notable for their heartiness, strength, and body - if you're looking for a strong cup of black tea, this is it. The addition of milk will often enhance the more subtle flavor notes in Assam teas. Our loose leaf Assam tea is sourced from a variety of estates. Organic teas available.
