Buy Assam Tea

The twirling brown leaves and golden tips of the world’s greatest Assam black teas yield lovely honey and malty flavors, a little like the maltiness of a good beer. Notice this when you buy assam tea. Assams are also among the most assertive and brisk of the black teas. It’s no accident: The more quickly a tea is made, the brisker the body. And everything about Assam tea is fast. Assam is India’s tea basket, a hothouse region that generates astonishing quantities of tea in just 6 weeks. Assam teas derive fromCamellia sinensis var.assamica, a large-leafed variety of tea discovered only in the 1830s by British botanist-adventurer Charles Bruce. The British were quick to establish massive tea plantations, which today grow many different clones of the wild original. In Assam’s subtropical conditions, the plants suffer for nothing, least of all water: Assam is one of the wettest places on the planet. The mighty Brahmaputra River cuts right down the Y-Shaped northeastern region, brimming with melted Himalayan snows and the region’s rains. The weather is fairly consistent: It either pours down rain or it is sunny and steamy. In the tropical moisture, the tea bushes draw from the rich, alluvial soil to generate thick, big leaves from May through June. We have a very large selection of Assam tea, so go ahead buy Assam tea. You will love the taste.
