Organic Assam Tea Loose Leaf 100g Box details and description

Steenbergs Organic Assam Tea, loose leaf is our everyday single estate Assam tea that currently comes from Jamguri Esate.  From the highlands of Assam, Jamguri estate is part of the same group of organic tea estates as Ambootia and Monteviot teas, both of which have been some of our firm favourites since the year dot (for Steenbergs that's 2003).  For a little more detail, Jamguri is in the Golaghat District of Eastern Assam.  

Steenbergs Organic Assam Tea is a small broken orange pekoe leaf (the grade is TGBOP) and is a rich brown colour with a few golden tips through it.  As a small leaf tea, Steenbergs Assam brews a vigorous black tea that is malty without too much astringency and works fabulously with milk and even some sugar.  It's a good, old fashioned brew, but without too much bitterness and with good organic and ethical credentials to satisfy our souls.  Lovely stuff.

Brewing Tip: one teaspoon of Steenbergs organic Assam tea leaves per mug or person (please note: mug and person are not one and the same). Add freshly drawn, boiling water, steep for 4 - 5 minutes according to taste.

One of the specially selected single estate loose leaf teas by Steenbergs.
