About Black Tea

About Breakfast Assam

Breakfast Assam (pronounced brek-fast ah-sahm) is the classic black tea (Camellia sinensis) enjoyed for centuries throughout the English-speaking world. It has a rich, dark body without a lot of bitterness. It can be enjoyed with sweetener and creamer, and it goes quite well with a hearty breakfast. This tea is a lot easier on the stomach, teeth, breath, and nerves than coffee, yet it satisfies with its full flavor and stimulation.
