Bodoland Breakfast

$16.00
| /

Wake up with this bright tea from the Bodoland region in northeastern India's Assam. Produced organically on a small 4-acre farm, the hand-picked leaves have a sweet, fruity aroma, with a pleasant note of wintergreen. Lighter than a traditional Assam tea, the flavor is well balanced, almost reminiscent of a Ceylon black tea.

Assam is one of the teas traditionally used in breakfast blends; try this version to experience a single-lot, nuanced taste of this lush region.

What a Good Cup is All About

I really enjoyed this black tea -- the leaves are good for more than one cup or small pot. Unlike conventional, grocery store varieties, this tea has some complexity and backbone. It is easy to overdo this one, though, so I'd experiment with different amounts to tinker with your perfect cup. The flavor is bright, intense, and noticeably pungent. The finish is alkaline but worth the wake-up call.

Great Everyday Tea

If you like to drink black tea regularly in the morning, this is a great go-to. It has a nice subtle flavor and it is very pleasant. I would prefer a bolder flavor, a personal preference, but I still really enjoy this tea.
