Assam is the main ingredient of all breakfast teas. It adds the brisk or astringent flavor.
What’s the best part of a morning routine? Many people would say coffee, but the epicureans among us may say tea. If you are a true tea aficionado, you are a fan of Assam tea and if you are a tea-lover who hasn’t tried Assam, you will be a big fan. So intense and yet smooth, this tea appeals to both the palate of a reluctant tea drinker and that of a gourmet. But, for those who know tea, Organic Assam is a staple drink.
Robust, complex and pungent describes the lush and intense tea leaves, big and dark, hailing from the Assam region of India. Organic, this black tea is the fruit of cool nights and hot days, hallmarks of the perfect tea-growing climate.
Substantial and malty, this breakfast tea is cream of the crop—of the tea crop, that is. To call Organic Assam a breakfast tea is to undercut its superiority—it is far more than a breakfast tea—it is the breakfast tea—the essential wake-up call, the motivating afternoon pick-me-up. Moderate in caffeine contact, this smooth, intense tea cajoles you into your day, promising it will be a good one. Pair a fine cup of tea with a buoyant attitude, a spritely step and a clear mind, and you can take on your day, thanks to the superior black breakfast tea.
A must have staple for any tea drinker. Stock up now.
My friends at Good Life Tea are very much aware of my obsession with this full bodied tea! I love to put this tea on ice, on it's own or as a base to blend with other teas or tisanes. It's ability to hold up to ice makes it an essential at my house and I'm rarely without a tall glass at my side. I love to add some raw sugar to balance it's astringency but it's also great on it's own. A splash of lemon works well, too. As a hot drink I tend to prefer it over an Earl Grey. It's a straight up strong black tea that I find essential in my tea-loving life.
