In the Know

The rich bronze color and distinct malty taste is the trademark of teas named after its place of production, Assam, India. It is here where high temperatures during annual monsoon seasons provide the perfect greenhouse-like conditions that allow this iconic black tea to thrive. Enriching and invigorating, this classic tea is a staple amongst tea aficionados, either on its own, or as an ingredient in popular tea blends.

This Indian tea boasts an interesting history in the west, begun when a Scottish trader came upon the plant, Camellia sinensis var. assamica, and witnessed local tribesmen brewing the leaves and seeds to drink. In 1830, the plant was sent to a botanical gardens in Calcutta to be examined, where it was, indeed, identified as a variety of tea.

Review Title: Good taste and like its color

Review by Rebecca Chengon November 1, 2016
Never heard this tea before, until happened tried it from my friend. My first impression was to like its reddish color very much, same as its aroma, and then figured out that it is a tea with strong caffeine and could really help me in a sleepy morning. Bought three boxes and took one to my office. I don't use it everyday, as too much caffeine can make me hard to sleep at night sometimes. But this tea is a very pleasant helper in the morning if I am in a kind of "winter blue" mood.
