Ingredients: organic assam tea (Camellia sinensis)
The mastery of making black tea has been refined over the centuries and involves leaving the leaves to wither in the open, following with a "crush, tear, curl" procedure where the leaves are prepared for fermentation, carefully controlling for temperature and humidity. Finally, the leaves are heat dried to arrest the oxidation process, then sorted and graded according to size, and packaged.
Black tea is generally stronger in flavor than the less oxidized teas. Tonganagaon assam tea steeps a cup some describe as silky smooth with light notes of spice and malt, along with some toasty nuances. Black tea contains caffeine.
Variety: Tonganagaon estate, a small tea garden located near the Namdapha National Park, one of the richest areas of biodiversity in all of India.
