Bold black tea from the Assam region of India. Assam tea is known for a deep, burgundy-red cup and pungent flavor. Our Assam Melody is perfect for tea drinkers who may be new to the powerful character of Assam. Rich aroma, more sweet starchy than malty, like roasted plantains. Rounded mouthfeel, malty without being overpowering. Slight notes of raisin. Brisk astringency and not extremely pungent. A solid, 'friendly' Assam, from the well-regarded Meleng Estate.

This tea contains a high level of caffeine | Steep at 212° for 3-5 minutes.

Our teabags contain the same high-quality tea as our loose-tea offerings. Their pyramid shape gives the leaves plenty of room to unfurl and infuse, placing more flavor in each cup. Enjoy the superior flavor of gourmet tea with the convenience of a disposable bag.

Fresh From Origin

Assam is the world's largest tea-growing region, lying on either side of the Brahmaputra River, and bordering Bangladesh and Burma (Myanmar). Assam has a tropical climate, heavily influenced by the monsoons and without the normal hot and dry season found in the rest of India. In the warmest month, the temperature is in the mid to upper 80's, while in January, low 60's are the norm. The most prized Assams are the second flush teas, coming right before the monsoons, with a rich, spicy and malty flavor. Teas harvested during and right after the rainy season tend to be softer and more floral in character.
