Our verdict: With plenty of golden tips, this lovely Assam tea produces a very fine liquor: flowery, full-bodied and long in the mouth. One of the best Assams.

Story: The province of Assam is situated in northeastern India, to the east of Darjeeling. This fertile region produces more than 1/2 of India's tea. The rainfall is the same as in Darjeeling (dry from November to January and wet from April to September) but the rain is much heavier. There are two types of harvest. However, the 1st Flush rarely takes place and the bulk of production occurs between April and October.

Assam teas are robust, spicy, tannic and astringent, typically known as "British taste". The infusion is generous and very dark and the dark, powerful liqueur can sometimes be drunk with milk.

Tea and food pairings:
The Assam Maijian perfectly pairs with poultry such as chicken.
