Barooti Assam is a premium blend of Broken Assam Leaves with Golden Tips. This tea comes from the best gardens of the picturesque Brahmaputra Valley of Northern India and produces a strong cup of tea with rich flavor and color.

Tea Preparation

The quality of water used has an impact on the quality of the tea. Always use freshly drawn water or filtered water. 


Heat fresh water to rolling boil or to a temperature of 212F using an electric hot water heater or a stove top kettle.

Infusion Time

Use the infuser of your choice. Measure 1 teaspoon of tea per person. For a stronger brew preference, add an additional teaspoon for the pot.

Once the water reaches the appropriate temperature, it should be poured immediately over the tea leaves. Keep the teapot covered to retain heat. Time steeping carefully and infuse for 5-7 minutes. When the tea is done steeping, immediately remove the tea and lightly stir.

Caffeine Level

This black tea has more caffeine than teas in our green tea range. It's important to keep in mind that brew time accounts for the primary influence over a tea's caffeine content.

Decently brisk with noticeable varietal character

We typically blend with a lower grade but still plenty expensive Darjeeling for our morning cuppa

My favorite!

I have enjoyed this tea for many years. It’s my favorite morning cuppa.

Exceptional Breakfast Tea at Last from Ahmad!

I am a fan of Assam tea at breakfast time. Much better than a cup of coffee, in my opinion. I have tried Ahmad’s Majestic Breakfast tea in the most beautiful tin. However, that tea blend was a disappointment and I have since left a review to show my displeasure. This tea is full bodied, rich and definitely malty in true British and Irish fashion. My only request is for Ahmad to offer this tea in a metal tin instead of a flimsy cardboard box.

Robust & Delicious

This Barooti Assam tea tastes AMAZING!! I love the brisk, malty, full-bodied flavor. It has quickly become my go to morning tea. I have a 4-cup teapot 🫖 so I use 5 scoops of tea and steep it 6 minutes. I use 3 scoops in my 17.5 ounce single cup. Again, this tea tastes so good!!!

Barooti Assam

Lately I have been wanting a stronger tea for my first tea of the morning and this has become my favorite. I'm glad it comes in the larger container so I'll have extra to share with any friend who's looking to try an Assam tea. Great specialty tea and well worth the price.
