Assam is the quintessential black Indian tea. Rich, robust, astringent and highly aromatic--milk and sugar complement this tea well.
Assam is a robust tea and is considered a “morning tea”. Assam tea holds up well to the addition of milk and also makes a flavorful iced tea.
To enjoy, pour 6 oz simmering water (185F preferred) over one teaspoon of tea. Steep 4-5 minutes, strain and serve immediately.
