An exceptionally high-quality decaffeinated Assam tea, produced using the CO2 method. As a result of the care taken during the decaffeination procedure, you can still appreciate the dark brown leaf with golden tips. This is almost unknown for a decaffeinated tea. This gives you a truly delightful decaf Assam tea brew that is strong and malty and can be enjoyed with or without milk.

Assam is the largest tea growing area in the world, where 2,000 gardens can produce almost 450,000 tons of tea each year. Assam tea accounts for about 55 per cent of India's total annual production. Assam is a vast and beautiful area of dense forests and open rolling plains through which the mighty Brahmaputra river runs, carrying rich fertile soil down from the mountains of Tibet to the agricultural plains. Exceptionally high rainfall (sometimes exceeding 10m in just one season) produces a very humid environment comparable to being inside a vast greenhouse - consequently, the plants thrive, producing a tea that is very different to Darjeeling.
