Cream of Assam, Organic Rani Estate
In the northeastern state of Assam in India, along the Brahmaputra River grow the hearty, malty Assam teas. The heavy rainfall and hot, humid day time temperatures in this area create the perfect green house like environment for growth, as well as helping to create the unique taste found only in Assam teas. Their distinct flavor can be enjoyed “as is”; however, Assam teas are often used in conjunction with other teas to create numerous blends, specifically breakfast teas. The Rani Estate, located in southwestern Assam, produces this delicious organic tea. The small, slender, black, slightly curled leaves have a malty aroma and brew to a bright cup with a deep amber liquor. The taste is smooth and slightly sweet, and leaves a creamy taste on the tongue.
