Detailed Description
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.

The Harmutty tea estate is one of the oldest tea gardens in Assam, dating back to the 1870’s. It is located in the NorthEast region of Assam, in the North Lakimpur district alongside the Dikrong river and bordering the forest of Arunachal Pradesh. The name Lakimpur is thought to be derived from “Lakshmi”, the name for the Goddess of Prosperity.

The golden tippy, uniform, well-styled leaves brew to a smooth and malty cup with classic Assam boldness.

Brew tea at 212º – steep for 3 min
