Assam is the quintessential black Indian tea. Rich, robust, astringent and highly aromatic, Frontier® Organic Fair Trade Assam Tea leaves are Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe grade. Often considered a "morning tea," Assam is also the perfect choice for a formal English-style tea and all the traditional cakes, sandwiches and sweets that that go with it. Assam holds up well to the addition of milk and sugar and also makes a flavorful iced tea. Our organic, Fair Trade Certified™ bulk Assam tea is kosher certified.

To enjoy, pour 6 ounces simmering water (185 degrees preferred) over one teaspoon of tea. Steep 4 to 5 minutes, strain and serve immediately.
Black teas can be malty, floral, biscuity, smoky, brisk, fragrant and full-bodied. The robustness of black tea lends itself to the addition of sugar, honey, lemon, cream and milk. While black teas have more caffeine than green or white teas, they still have less than you would get in a cup of coffee.
