This is one of the most popular teas. Full bodied, sharp with hints of walnut - great for that morning cup!

This is still the best of teas but is not as strong as when I last bought it quite a few years ago. I suppose all teas vary from year to year. John Andrew Ions on 31st Mar 2019
Not as golden as the picture, but the resulting cup of tea is gloriously refreshing Richard on 10th Jun 2018

I have always loved Assam tea, this one surpasses the many others I have tried from other suppliers.
I will be purchasing Assam A from Pumphreys from now on. Kenneth Robertson on 2nd Jul 2017
Since going to North east India three years ago and actually being able to see the tea pickers at work, and being able to buy tea straight from the factory which was just down the road, it was the freshest of the fresh, tea like we had never tasted before. The Assam tea which we buy from Pumphreys is as good as it gets, just as in India, PERFECT! Lynda Macklam on 18th Mar 2016
Nothing tastes the same after drinking this blend. Once brewed and tasted there is no going back- Can be drank strong or weak- The flavour is there. Unknown on 27th May 2015
