The Tao of Tea, 100% Organic, Malty Assam, Full Bodied Black Tea, 3.5 oz (100 g)14 Reviews
The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.
The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

Origin Assam, Northeast India
Assam is the largest tea producing region in the world and borders with China, Burma, and Bangladesh. The discovery of Assam tea is attributed to the Singhpow tribe in Northern Assam. They are known to be the earliest users of the tea plant as a medicinal herb and beverage.
Motivating Fair Trade
The Tao of Tea selected to join the Fair Trade movement early in its inception. Although we are a specialty tea company and already pay some of the highest prices in the industry, we began our participation to help motivate others to join the movement.
Fair Trade Premium
The Tao of Tea chooses to pay a premium to tea producers on top of the market price. The additional funds are managed under the supervision of a non-profit organization, by the tea estate and by representatives of the workers. Our intent is to facilitate more democratic working conditions, fair wages for the tea workers and premiums for their labor so that they can afford improved housing, healthcare, and education. It also enforces child labor restrictions and promotes environmentally sound farming.
A dark, smooth, full-bodied brew with malty, caramel undertones. Pairs well with milk and sugar.
Steep one teaspoon of leaf in eight ounces of spring or filtered water at 200F for four minutes.
100% organic black tea leaves.
iHerb Customer Reviews
The best black tea ordered from iHerb - very tasty, natural, deep taste and rich aroma. A bit too expensive, but we still want to re-order it again and again. // Лучший черный чай из заказанных тут! Очень вкусный, гутой аромат, натуральный, вкус глубокий, настоящий ассам. Дороговато, но мы все равно перезаказываем его.
The leaves are huge which is a sign of its quality. The taste is amazing. If you love tea then you really need to try this brand as it is very high quality. The container is beautiful so it would make a lovely gift.
