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.

A delicious Assam! This small estate is located in Northeast India near the Namdapha National Park, which is recognized as one of India’s richest areas of biodiversity. The medium-black, slightly tippy leaves brew to a medium amber cup with a delightful, well-bodied malty taste.

Brew tea at 212º – steep for 3 minutes.

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

I love a delicious assam and this is one of them. A nice organic tea — mostly black leaves with hints of gold. Once brewed, the cup has the fragrance of one of those tomato soup type tea flavors that I sometimes find in assams. Somehow it is only in the wafting fragrance of the tea and not the flavor itself. Instead, the flavor is malty and savory at the forefront but then switches to a lovely thirst quenching quality that reminds me of fruit. This assam has many layers and I like those layers. The brew color with the sun shining through the clear mug is a deep burgundy. I don’t think this one gets bitter. A great example of a tasty assam.
Steep #1 // 1 1/2 teaspoons for a full mug // 13 minutes after boiling // 3 minute steep
Steep #2 // couple minutes after boiling // 4 minute steep
