caffeine: no-caffeine

Tea as the Indians drink it. This Assam has a striking amber color, rich flavor, and is full bodied as well. It is a key ingredient in several of our blends, including the East Frisian and Indian Spice. It takes milk and sugar and can also be enjoyed solo. An "espresso-style" tea! Dry Leaves: Dark leaves, cut into small uniform pieces. (Cut, tear, curl) Liquor: Dark brown. Aroma: Assertive, sweet-charred aromas like with roasted sweet onions. Caffeine Level: Caffeinated Body: This is about as full bodied a tea as we sell. It is intensely brisk or astringent. Most people like to add milk. Flavors: Most people drink this tea for its strength, the flavors are secondary, especially if milk and sugar are added. There are subtle roasted malt notes. Brewing Time: 4 to 5 minutes Brewing Temperature: 212° F
