The tea leaves come from Camellia assamica, a large tea leaf grown at only a few select tea estates. The leaves are oxidized longer than most darker Assams, resulting in an amber red brew and a high volume of essential oil that coats the surface of the tea. This is a high-quality tea, noted by its longs leaves and abundance of gold coloring on the leaves. The result is a smooth drinking tea with notes of apple and pear. This Assam takes milk and sugar well and makes a great iced tea.
