About this tea

Tea Story

We taste literally hundreds of Assam teas each year. It’s all worth it when we find that traditional bold pungency and sweet, malty depth that made Assam famous in the first place. Assam Extra Fancy features Flowery Orange Pekoe teas from the best gardens at the peak of the second flush, evident by the lovely golden tips. Enjoy hints of honey, toast and wood.

Brewing Tips

Steeping Instructions:
Start with a preheated cup or teapot.
Measure 1 heaping spoonful (3g) of tea for each cup of water.
Bring the water to a rolling boil; steep tea for 4 minutes.
Strain leaves while pouring.

After Peet's Tea changed to Mighty Leaf, Assam Extra Fancy is no longer available in store. My husband and I were so disappointed. We went to Peet's just for tea but Assam Extra Fancy was discontinued. Seemed there is no reason to stop by Peet's anymore as we are tea drinkers. I was thrilled to see Assam Extra Fancy available in online store and I immediately purchased a pound. Sadly, I was disappointed as the tea is not as good as before. The color, boldness, fragrance are not the same. I miss Peet's tea!
