Assam Orthodox TGFOP - This full-bodied black tea from Assam, India has smooth top notes with a sweet and robust flavor. It is known for its malty flavor and strong, coppery color. It is often used as the base for many blends of tea, and is popular for its bold taste and bright, refreshing aroma.
This tea is traditionally enjoyed as a breakfast tea and takes milk. The tea leaves have a wonderful, complex aroma even before infusion. Yields over 50 cups and may be steeped multiple times.
We offer Assam in 3 oz bags. This tea has caffeine.
Brewing Iced Tea:
If brewing as an iced tea, we recommend cold brewing it in the fridge overnight for 8-10 hours in an iced tea filter pitcher. The flavor will be smooth and delicious. Check out our post on making great iced tea every time.
