Assam is located in the northeast corner of India, where the mighty river Brahmaputra runs. Assam is known for producing the famous “tippy teas” that refer to a black tea with golden shoots and leaves. The Assam Valley is approx. 200 km east of Darjeeling, where it borders on China, Burma and Bangladesh. Unlike in the mountain areas, the soil in the valley is thick and moist. Plants in Assam grow quickly and have enormous 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.
Assam Leaf Blend is brewed in a preheated teapot.
