This cup was designed by the Camellia Sinensis team in partnership with a ceramic workshop in Taiwan. 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). It was transformed using the Orthodox Method, which is odd for a region that is accustomed to producing more industrial type teas (CTC). The liquor is spicy (pepper, bay leaf), slightly camphorous, fruity, lightly burnt (toasted bread), and malty. The aromatics are well balanced and the tannins well structured. This tea is sure to please fans of black teas that are strong but not too harsh.
Our tea packs contain a selection from our bestselling teas. Inside: each tea is vacuum packed to retain freshness and to assure authenticity. Outside: the box is covered with all the information you need on the tea's origin, the producer profile, a taste description plus the tea's levels of antioxidants and caffeine.
Now offered in individual teabags, our organic Assam Breakfast (Banaspaty) contains the same Indian black tea leaves as our loose leaf Assam Breakfast.
