Assam, Kachibari Village
As featured on NPR's Morning Edition!
This tea is from the Kachibari Village in northeastern India's Assam, one of the largest black tea production regions in the world. An unusual find from the area, this Assam highlights the passion of two producers, including Tenzing, on his organic 7 1/2 acre farm: He has taken a lead in making tea without the use of chemical pesticides or fertilizers. The hand-picked leaves have a sweet, full aroma reminiscent of gingerbread; the flavor is bold but balanced, with notes of malt, black currant and dried fruit.
Assam is one of the teas traditionally used in breakfast blends; try this version to experience a nuanced taste of this lush region, or our Bodoland Breakfast to compare the production from nearby farm.
A similar lot also available in teabags.
Tasting Notes: black currant, malt, bold
Harvest Season: Summer 2019

Drinking Assam is like coming home! Although it doesn’t have some of the more exotic notes, it’s such a lovely sturdy tea. I like to blend several different black teas together for my daily carafe...and I find that Assam is a REQUIREMENT for any blend to come together! It is both malty (great descriptive word) and caramel-y ....and pairs perfectly with milk.
Good tea at a fair price. Delighted with how customer service handled delivery delay around Christmas.
My current favorite. For breakfast (loose leaf in a pot) it's bold enough to take milk and start the day, but I have to say that malty blackberry flavor-thing it's got is just delicious. I'm sold.
Highly flavorful. One of my favorite teas.
I love this tea. It has an excellent flavor and it’s neither strong or too weak -just right!
Everything perfect: the teas,the owners, the staff!
Very pleased with this tea and with your Lapsang Souchiu
