Welcome to Tea Tasters, this month we are exploring Green Assam OP. Assam is an ingredient that you would usually find in an English Breakfast tea, however, this particular Assam is very unusual as it’s a fine grade tea that has been processed the Green Tea way. The young greenish leaves, full of tip are what make this tea extremely high quality.
Green Assam OP Tea is named after the region of its production, Assam, in India. Assam tea is manufactured specifically from the Assamica variety of the plant Camellia Sinensis. Assam is associated with wonderfully thick, malty black teas, however this is an excellent example of one of the flavoursome green teas that are becoming well known.
