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 normally 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, the 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.
