This tea is grown in the northeastern Indian state of Assam, one of the largest tea-producing regions in the world. Compared to other black leaf teas, Assam is generally stronger. In addition this smaller size of leaf tea compared to our other leaf teas is as much comparable to Breakfast blend as it is to our very light Ceylon Leaf.
Assam tea is often described as having a malty flavor and a rich, flowery aroma.
Unlike our coffees, our teas are all sold pre-packed. We source them ourselves, cut and blend them if necessary on the premises before packing them is small runs.
Teas mixed on the premises include Organic Breakfast Tea and herbal blends like Sleepeasy.
Before being exported teas are usually processed at origin. Black teas are fermented while drying and Green Teas are dried faster and not allowed to ferment.
Of the fermented black teas the strongest are teas that go through the (self-explanatory) crush tear and curl process known as CTC. But even just having small sized pieces (ie fannings) can make tea stronger as the surface area is increased.
