High Tea Assam Black Tea Leaf, Taiwan - 600G
Assam tea is often described as having a malty flavor and a rich, savory aroma. These distinct features are typically attributed to the tea’s unique production process.
After fresh Assam tea leaves are harvested and withered, they undergo an oxidation process — also referred to as fermentation — that exposes them to oxygen in a controlled-temperature environment for a designated period of time. This process stimulates chemical changes in the leaves, resulting in the unique flavors, color, and plant compounds that are characteristic of Assam tea.
