CLASSIC LOOSE LEAF TEAS

 

Black Tea

 

Assam Bari

Our Assam Bari is a classic full-bodied Assam Tea from one of the best-known tea gardens in the heart of India. This tea is robust and malty with hints of spice that offer an extravagant, lively taste with many golden tips. Assam Bari is harvested in the summer and graded ‘GFBOP’. The classification means that this tea is ‘golden’, ‘flowery’ – offering fragrance and aroma, ‘orange’ - referring to the tracing back to Royal tea gardens, meaning exquisite or especially good and ‘pekoe’ - the fine thin hairs on the tea leaf’s edge. The cup is glossy and golden brown, but we also love this loose-leaf tea with a dash of milk and a sprinkling of sugar.
