Description

Assam tea is a black tea named after the region of its production, Assam, in India. Assam tea is manufactured specifically from the plant Camellia sinensis var. assamica (Masters). The same tea plant is also traditionally used in Yunnan province in China. Assam tea is mostly grown at or near sea level and is known for its body, briskness, malty flavour, and strong, bright colour. Assam teas, or blends containing Assam, are often sold as "breakfast" teas. For instance, Irish breakfast tea, a maltier and stronger breakfast tea, consists of small-sized Assam tea leaves.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Packed full of antioxidants, Assam tea not only wins on taste but also on health benefits. Not quite as loaded with antioxidants as green and white tea due to the extensive oxidation process, however, benefits such as decreasing the risk of heart attacks and strokes, and improve blood circulation.
