Assam, Kalgar

India / Camellia sinensis
  • Double sized assam

The flavor of this classic Kalgar Assam from India hints at a bit of fruit, while maintaining all of the traditional malty character that makes tea from the region famous. Try it with milk and sugar for a classically British afternoon pick-me-up. It's also a preferred base for our Sweet Chai Masala and Roast Chai Masala.

Brewing Instructions: Brew 3-4 minutes at 210° F; 1 steeping.
