Assam borders Bangladesh and Myanmar and lies in the northeastern tip of India, just south of China. Due to the high precipitation and tropical climate, growers in Assam enjoy a long production season, making it the second largest commercial tea producing region in the world (next to China). Tea in Assam is grown in low altitudes and is known for its strong, malty flavor. Second flush (picking) Assams have more golden tips, giving it a sweeter flavor, and are more prized than first flush Assams.
Ingredients: Black tea from India.
