From Ridgways

Said to have been discovered early in the 19th century, Assam tea is a robust blend of black teas grown in India’s north eastern province of the same name. A rich, malty, smooth tea with lingering hints of walnuts and plump raisins.

Very strong, very malty, unmistakably Assam. If I handed this to someone and did not tell them what it was, they might think it was coffee. Milk and sugar was not enough to tame this beast; it required some agave nectar as well. A definite wake you up kind of tea.

Wonderful, bold assam. yummie. At times, I drink it with whipped cream to make it extra special. :0 in the Frisian way.
Also very nice without cream/sugar. Bold, no bitterness though. And tea doesn’t stew.

one of the few bagged teas I really, really like, and even prefer over some loose leaf assams…
