Our Assam Superior is hand-picked from the finest tea plants on the Baghmari Tea Estate located between the Himalayas and Brahmaputra river in the very North of Assam, India.
This fine example of single-estate Assam teas has all of the characteristics one would expect of an excellent Assam; dark, robust whole black tea leaves with plenty of tip; a robust, full-bodied and spicy aroma and a wonderful red-brown infusion complete with malty, slightly spicy flavours with a hint of orchid, cocoa and caramel.
The bright reddish-brown infusion is brisk, smooth and sweet with plenty of Assam's characteristic malty flavour, fruity overtones and hints of chocolate and caramel. Our single estate Assam Teas are handpicked, tasted and specially selected each harvest for you to enjoy.

According to some studies, long-term consumption of black tea has been linked to lowering the risk of a stroke.
The high concentration of flavonoids found in black tea are said to help reduce the clotting of arteries, acting as antioxidants to reduce the levels of damaging free radicals in the body.
Often black tea is overlooked for its health benefits; overshadowed by the publicity surrounding the health benefits of green and white teas.
