Time for Tea, Assam


I have been loving Assam tea since my Boston restaurant days.  One of my servers took a trip to England and brought me back a box of Harvey Nichols Assam tea.  It has been stocked in my pantry ever since.

Assam tea is a black tea harvested in the foothills of the Himalayas in Assam India.  Irish Breakfast tea is typically made from a blend of Assam and Ceylon teas.  Like most black teas, Assam lends itself to milk and sugar.  It offers a pleasant malty flavor and a gorgeous caramel color.  It is a perfect morning tea.

I found this Saphara brand Assam at my local grocer and it is quite good.  It is both USDA Organic and Fair Trade Certified.
