Overall Character
A hearty, brisk brew. Not a drop-dead dazzler, not an aristocrat of teas, but eminently respectable and pleasing to the palate.

Overall Character
This tea is one of those rare ones that I find I can drink any time of day. It's great with milk and sugar and has just the right amount of flavor (nothing too overwhelming). Probably a good tea to try first if you've never ordered from this site before.

We have been purchasing Assam from Mark T. Wendell for probably well over a decade and have purchased from other companies. Mark T. Wendell has had the BEST Assam and customer service of any tea company we have used.

Overall Character


Highly regarded by connoisseurs, this tea is produced in the largest growing region in Northern India, Assam. Its pungent liquor brews to a dark-reddish color, leaving a full-bodied cup with a malty taste that is truly unique. Assam takes well to milk and sugar.

Brewing Tips: Assam tea should be made with cold, filtered water that has been brought to a rolling boil (205-212° F). Using one rounded teaspoon of loose tea or one teabag for each cup required, pour the boiling water over the tea leaves. Assam tea should be steeped for 4-5 minutes. Once the ideal brewing time has been reached, the leaves should be removed to prevent further steeping. Decant and enjoy!

How Much Tea Do I Need?
1 pound of loose leaf tea will make approximately 160 cups of brewed tea
8 ounces of loose leaf tea will make approximately 80 cups of brewed tea
4 ounces of loose leaf tea will make approximately 40 cups of brewed tea
