Finally, the leaves are heat dried to arrest the oxidation process, then sorted and graded according to size, and packaged.

Love this Tea
I love this tea as the leaves are not over crushed , there is very little dust in a 1lbs bag and the same for a 5lbs bag . I've bought pounds of this tea over a couple years and at most from all the bags I've bought I've maybe got a couple teaspoons of dust from the larger 5lbs bags. I love the price as it's only a few dollars more then a pound of reg non-organic tea. Most reg non-organic tea does contain chemicals like pesticides and some are very bad and banned in Canada, same with coffee. It has taste and it does not taste like grass, I've never had a bad experienced with this company or their products or delivery. I will continue buying this product as long as OM carries it , If you like loose leaf black tea this is one of the best ones to try, enjoy .
Organic Assam Tea
This is my first time ordering this product and I was really impressed. It is sooooo smooth in comparison to any store bought tea I have purchased and has no bitterness at all.
Not amazing, but still decent
This was a decent tea, but not the best we've had. It's a cut leaf tea rather than a whole leaf tea, which affects its flavour somewhat. But wow, what a price! A quarter of what we pay at the local tea shop.
My experience has been great with OM they ship really quick and everything is always in order.
Organic Assam Tea
I like the quality and smooth flavour of this tea. Just wish it wouldn't come in a plastic bag! Paper or compostable packaging would be great.
