This tea is from the Kachibari Village in northeastern India's Assam, one of the largest black tea production regions in the world. An unusual find from the area, this Assam highlights the passion of two producers, including Tenzing, on his organic 7 1/2 acre farm: He has taken a lead in making tea without the use of chemical pesticides or fertilizers. The hand-picked leaves have a sweet, full aroma reminiscent of gingerbread; the flavor is bold but balanced, with notes of malt, black currant and dried fruit.
Assam is one of the teas traditionally used in breakfast blends; try this version to experience a nuanced taste of this lush region.
