How It Tastes

Assam Golden Tip Tea has a perfectly balanced sweet malty aroma with a strong, rich taste, which makes it an ideal breakfast tea. Excellent with a splash of milk. The leaf is a bold Broken style, allowing for quick infusion, dense body, and bright red color.

History

From the moment the first lots sold at the 1839 London auction, Assam tea has maintained its dominance among British tea blends. Golden Tip’s namesake leaves turn color during the peak quality period of the second flush, adding a pop of gold among the rich, black leaves. Our Assam Golden Tip black tea is a blend of hand-selected lots grown by the Brahmaputra River at the foot of the Himalayas in Assam, India.
