Assam tea is a black tea named after the region of its production. It is cultivated in the tea plantations of the Brahmaputra Valley, in the Indian state of Assam. This is the world's largest tea growing region. It experiences high rains during the monsoon, period 250 - 300 mm of rain per day. The daytime teperatures rise to about 96.8F creating greenhouse like conditions. Fertile, low-lying land and a hot, wet climate combine to produce teas that are dark in colour, with a strong and distinctively malty flavour.
Assam tea is the perfect breakfast accompaniment. For those partial to a dash of milk or sugar, it is the ideal choice.
