A premium blend of golden tippy long leaf Assam tea from the best gardens in Northern India. A pleasant cup with balanced color and flavor.


Tea Preparation
Water

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

Temperature

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.

Ahmad Tea's Kalami Assam

I purchase at least one large box of loose-leaf Kalami Assam each year.

Great when you want a tea with substantial flavor.

I love this malty full bodied tea. A deep flavor without bitterness. I drink this in the afternoon, and it is a real delight. I tried the Barooti Assam, but I prefer this one because it is more mellow.

Silver Spoon

Kalami Assam, a delightfu black tea, light with just enough bitter. I take mine with 1/2 & 1/2 and a small teaspoon of honey. I serve it in my special chinese porcelain cup and use a silver spoon for the honey, it makes it that more special. Oh, I use loose leaf.

Update..

Finally figured the best preparation....back at a more usual amount of tea, I use 3 tsp for my small pot, and steep it much longer than my favourite broken leaf Barooti assam (purple box). I would recommend either Ahmad assam tea as a wonderful cuppa. I am enjoying a pot as I type.

I am trying to like this tea...

I tried this tea because I like assam teas. I still prefer the barooti assam in the purple box. Working on the best preparation and amount of leaves to use has been an unusual challenge. I keep adding more tea leaves to to make it stronger and it still is a bit subtle for my liking.
