Assam is located in the northeast corner of India, where the mighty river Brahmaputra runs. Assam is known for producing the famous “tippy teas” which refer to a black tea with golden shoots and leaves. The Assam Valley is located approx. 200 km east of Darjeeling, where it borders China, Burma and Bangladesh. Unlike the mountain areas, the soil in the valley is bold and moist. Tea plants in Assam grow quickly and gain tremendous power. During the monsoon – from April to September – Assam is transformed into the world’s largest greenhouse, producing almost a third of India’s total tea production.
Very aromatic, rich taste with mild sweetness.
