From Simpson & Vail

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 Belseri Tea Estate is actually made up of the Belseri and Chardwar Tea gardens, which have 1500 acres under cultivation. This tea estate is one of the largest organic tea producers in northern Assam. The tea has medium-black leaves that brew into a bright amber cup. The taste has a creamy, malty, well-balanced cup.

Brew tea at 212º – steep for 3 minutes.

Assam teas complement foods such as chocolate, spiced desserts, meat, strong cheeses, fish and more.

Thanks to Jim at Simpson & Vail, for sending me a free sample of this tea.

It’s amazing that the dry leaf smells just like chocolate and the tea while it’s brewing is really sweet and malty smelling!

Unfortunately the tea itself was not really to my liking – it is pungent and bitter and required a lot of soymilk to mellow it out. I definitely prefer a more mellow assam – sorry S & V. :(
