Named for the region of India where they are grown, Assam teas are usually described as bold, malty, and brisk. Assam teas are often principal members of "breakfast teas," whether English, Irish, or Scottish.
This Assam is Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe (TGFOP) from the Kondoli Estate, which is known for its consistent leaf quality and exquisite infusion. Wonderfully dark leaves create this copper-colored cup, which is full-flavored and delicious!
