Our own Winchester Breakfast Tea is a rich Assam TGFOP1 blended for the perfect start to the day. It has a full rich and malty taste, and is the best breakfast Assam tea we have tasted yet - which is why we have given it the name of our city. This is probably the most popular tea we sell and is most suitable for hard water. Excellent with a dash of milk.

Assam, the Secret Behind Winchester Breakfast Tea
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 enviroment comparable to being inside a vast greenhouse - consequently the plants thrive, producing a tea which is very different to Darjeeling.
