This Assam black tea is milder than most available on the market, making it very enjoyable to drink on any occasion. It’s a full-bodied Assam black tea with the unique finish you find only in high-quality Assam teas. The leaves are entirely hand-picked. You can see the leaves are fully intact and not broken, like the majority of Assam teas you find. Most full-leaf tea from Assam is machine-picked. This method normally damages the tea leaves more, and as a result it loses much of the best minerals and nutrients. It also makes the tea more liable to become more bitter.
This Assam has a very clean finish. It’s great to drink straight or with a dash of milk and sugar.
