In the northeastern state of Assam in India, along the Brahmaputra River grow the hearty, malty Assam teas. The heavy rainfall and hot, humid day time temperatures in this area create the perfect green house like environment for growth, as well as helping to create the unique taste found only in Assam teas. Their distinct flavor can be enjoyed “as is”; however, Assam teas are often used in conjunction with other teas to create numerous blends, specifically breakfast teas. This wonderful decaffeinated Assam tea has small, black and twisted leaves that yield an amber cup with a delightful cedar-like aroma. The liquor has an excellent body with the characteristic malty taste found in true Assam teas. This tea is decaffeinated using the all-natural CO2 process.

I was very disappointed with this tea, it didn’t taste fresh. It was not delivered in an air tight container and the leaves have very low fragrance and the brewed tea has a poor weak taste. I felt the decaf teas from Taylor’s of Harrogate and Clipper were significantly better.
