How It Tastes

Assam Extra Fancy black tea brews a robust cup with tantalizing hints of honey and malt, with a pungent taste and full body. It is excellent with a splash of milk. This whole leaf tea sets the standard for classic Assam.

History

We taste literally hundreds of small batch 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 is the finest of the Second Flush harvest which occurs typically in June of each year. The highest grades of tea are referred to as "Fine Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe,” as the dry leaf boasts lovely golden tips.
