Made of porcelain, the pure white glazed interior finish is perfect to enhance the colour of the liquor of either an entire gaiwan infuson or a shared teapot. An elegant everyday accessory with its pleasing curves and practical size.

This tea was cultivated in the Rift Valley from plants of the Assamica variety (the same grown in the Nilgiris, in Southern India).
This black tea from the plains of Assam in India is composed of fine whole leaf and a generous amount of golden tips. Notes of malt and dried fruit are complemented by floral and woody high notes. Its rich and creamy liquor has a slightly camphorated long persistence creating a sense of freshness!
Now offered in individual teabags, our organic Assam Breakfast (Banaspaty) contains the same Indian black tea leaves as our loose leaf Assam Breakfast.
