The strongest of Indian teas, this whole leaf black comes from India's first tea region. The tropical Assam plain that stretches between the Himalayas and the Indian Ocean is also home to the only other known indigenous tea plant outside of China. Its full body produces a richly, malty, robust liquor that takes well to milk and sugar.
