Full-bodied and bold, Assam black tea has robust character that is sweet and brisk. Malty and roasted notes, with a hint of dried fruit. And deep, dark-red color from high concentrations of tannins produced during the oxidation process. Assam black tea is a satisfying brew that can be consumed with or without milk. High levels of caffeine make it a great choice for breakfast tea and an excellent base for chai.
