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.

Flavor Profile

A dark, smooth, full-bodied brew with malty, caramel undertones. Pairs well with milk and sugar.

Suggested Use

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
 

rich in flavour, nice tin to reuse

Posted by bbchris on May 04, 2017 | Verified Purchase

The price is the only thing stopping me from giving it 5 stars. It does have a ROBUST flavour and the tea leaves are nice and long. I would order again as a treat.

Lovely

Like the tin says, it is a very malty Assam tea. It brews up pretty average, with a rich brown-red color. It pairs nicely with milk and honey, and makes a very good milk-tea if you're wanting something cold. The flavor profile holds up to chilling and I am surprised. I brew 4g in my 750mL teapot for 5 minutes. Comes out so nice and so smooth.

Smooth great tasting

This tea tastes great. There's no bitterness. It's a smooth, black tea. I ordered it because iherb was out of the just a leaf brand of assam and I like this one better (though it is more expensive).

Really nice, one of my favourite assam teas. Malty, lovely colour, excellent taste, huge leaves, rich aroma. The packaging is outstanding and the tin itself is very pretty. I only wish it weren't so pricey.
