Assam Black tea also known as Assam Orthodox tea is more oxidised compared to oolong tea, green tea or white tea. It is prepared with the freshly-plucked summer second flush tea leaves and the orthodox tea making procedure is followed. Namsesu’s orthodox tea is made by following the traditional methods of tea making and thus ensuring every cup of your tea filled up with that pure traditional touch. The colour of black tea when brewed is bright usually takes a dark brown colour or light black. But according to your choice you can take it as dark you want. Darker the colour more will be the bitter tastes, more the flavour of tea and strong will be the texture. Namsesu’s Assam black tea can be consumed in morning, noon or in the evening time. You can add sugar, honey or other sweetener to the tea if you like. People like to have it with lemon, ginger and other elements that go well with tea like cinnamon, clove, paper, cardamom etc.

Our Brewing Recommendation.
1. We recommend using fresh boiled water cooled down to a proper temperature.
2. Longer brewing time or larger amount of leaves result in more stronger taste with more stronger tea with more astringency.
3. Always use suitable teaware and cover the teapot or teacup while brewing. Always preheat your teapot.
