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

I just love this tea. I buy it in kilo bags.
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.
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!
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.
