  • Assam

    Two major tea growing regions in India are Assam and Darjeeling.   Assam conditions yield a bold, heavy, musty, earthy black tea that stands up to milk and sugar.  We blend this with the Sri Lankan English Breakfast and a strong Chinese black tea for our Irish Breakfast, but alone it is just one powerful cuppa.

    Serving Suggestion:   Serve strong and hot, alone or with milk and sugar.

    Brewing Instructions:  Use 1 heaping tsp. to 1 tbs. per 8 oz. water, to taste.  Steep 3-4 minutes to desired strength at 190 – 195F

    Ingredients:  Black tea from India’s Assam region, sourced from a certified organic, Fair Trade supplier.

    **DECAF ASSAM AVAILABLE by custom order, same price, 1 lb. minimum, we pay shipping on 1 lb. or more.  Order 16 oz. regular Assam and write ‘DECAF’ in PayPal Instructions to Seller, or email us at info@calteas.com for more information.

  • Irish Breakfast

    Our own proprietary blend of three bold, black teas from three different countries, it is the perfect morning tea.  A well-known tea blogger has said it’s the best Irish Breakfast she has ever found.  This is all loose tea, not the usual CTC (cut-tear-curl) many blenders use for Irish Breakfast.  Using loose tea gives it less ‘harshness’ but all the strength the blend is known for.

    Serving Suggestion:  Enjoy it strong and black or with milk and sugar.  Even cream and sugar.

    Brewing Instructions:  Use 1 heaping tsp. to 1 tbs. per 8 oz. water, to taste.  Steep it for at least 4 minutes.  If you want longer, fine.  Enjoy!  190-195F

    Ingredients:  Black tea blend.

    All teas in blend sourced from certified organic, Fair Trade suppliers.
