Regular price $10.95
Regular price Sale price $10.95


This is a bold, select orange pekoe tea entirely from Assam — the premier black tea growing region of India. Famous for its full, sweet, round, and delicious flavor and amber color, Assam tea pairs beautifully with milk, but is sweet and “tippy” enough to drink alone.

It’s challenging to source great Organic tea in Assam. Why? This region’s teas are so prized that they have no problem selling all their tea as conventional. In fact only a small portion of the hundreds of gardens in Assam are Certified Organic! Assam is a river  bottom region – the Brahmaputra river flows through the entire region. This river drains a massive area north of the Himalaya, an area almost the size of the continental US. When it flows through Assam on its way to the Indian Ocean, it is up to 6 miles wide! The area is hot and humid and the soil is black and fertile. This gives lots of nutrients to the tea plants which in turn give them great flavor.  Unlike Darjeeling, in Assam the 2nd flush (harvest) gives generally the best leaf. This means that we focus our buying on just a few weeks’ harvest out of the entire year!

Best Prepared

Preparing loose leaf tea can be a delightful and rewarding experience. The best way to prepare loose leaf tea depends on the type of tea you're using, as different teas may require slightly different methods and parameters. However, here is a general guide for preparing loose leaf tea:

Ingredients and Equipment:

  • Loose leaf tea of your choice
  • Clean, fresh, and cold water (ideally filtered)
  • Tea infuser, teapot with infuser, or a tea ball
  • A tea kettle
  • A timer


  1. Choose Your Tea:
    Start by selecting the type of loose leaf tea you want to brew. The variety of tea, its origin, and the specific leaves or blends can greatly impact the brewing process.
  2. Measure the Tea:
    Measure the appropriate amount of tea leaves based on the type of tea and your personal preference. A general guideline is to use approximately 1 teaspoon of tea leaves per 8 ounces (240 mL) of water. Adjust the amount to suit your taste, as some teas may require more or less.
  3. Boil Water:
    Heat fresh, cold water in a kettle. The water temperature varies depending on the type of tea:
  4. Preheat the Teapot or Cup:
    Pour a small amount of hot water into the teapot or cup to warm it up. Swirl the water around and then discard it. This helps maintain the tea's temperature during brewing.
  5. Add Tea Leaves to Infuser:
    Place the measured tea leaves into your chosen tea infuser, teapot with an infuser, or tea ball.
  6. Pour Hot Water:
    Pour the hot water over the tea leaves. Be sure to use the appropriate water temperature for the specific tea you're brewing, as noted above.
  7. Steep the Tea:
    Start a timer and let the tea steep for the recommended time. The steeping time varies depending on the type of tea: 5-7 minutes (or as instructed on the packaging)
  8. Remove the Tea Leaves:
    Once the tea has steeped for the appropriate time, remove the tea leaves by taking out the infuser or straining the tea through a fine sieve.
  9. Serve and Enjoy:
    Pour the brewed tea into your cup or teapot and enjoy. You can drink the tea plain or add sweeteners, milk, or other flavorings to taste.
  10. Store Loose Leaf Tea Properly:
    To keep your loose leaf tea fresh, store it in an airtight container away from light, heat, and moisture.

Remember that these are general guidelines, and the best way to prepare loose leaf tea may vary depending on the specific tea and your personal preferences. Experiment with different steeping times and quantities of tea leaves to find the perfect brew for your taste.
