Pickup available at The Local Refillery

Usually ready in 2-4 days


This Assam is produced from a distinct tea varietal growing in Assam called Camellia Assamica, a relatively larger-leaf tea plant.  Assam black teas often undergo special processing to bring out their full-bodied, rich undertones. After the newly sprouted leaves have been plucked, they are withered over warm air for a few hours to reduce moisture. Once a suitable suppleness is achieved in the leaves, a delicate rolling of the leaves is performed. The leaves begin to oxidize (change color from green to dark), and the flavor develops. Finally, the leaves are oven-baked, resulting in a rich malty brew with a very subtle caramel sweetness.
