This tea changed my mind!
I've avoided Assam tea for the longest time because I've wrongly assumed that it is just a plain, ordinary tea.. Recently, however, I took the plunge and decided to give TROT's Assam a try since I've never had a bad TROT tea. Well! Talk about an unexpected and pleasant surprise when I drank my first cup. This is some seriously tasty tea, provided I brew it slightly weaker than recommended. If I steep Assam Breakfast in 8 oz vs 6 oz, it's so good that it actually makes some of my prior favorite teas seem rather bland in comparison. This is one tea that is going to take up permanent residence in my house. Highly recommended!
I love this tea, I drink it all day. For a little sweetness try a touch of maple syrup. I had a bottled assam somewhere with that in it and I do it at home all the time now.
Consistently Good Flavor
I've been ordering this from ROT for almost a decade.....one of my favorites in their line of teas.
I say Assam
Rich tasting, robust smelling breakfast tea par excellence!
My husband and I had this tea for the first time in New Zealand about 20 years ago and LOVED it. Had never been able to find it until a few years ago discovered Tea Republic. So HAPPY! This is a wonderful tea throughout the day. We love it hot and it takes milk wonderfully (soy, coconut, cow). Terrific go-to tea without the bitterness that happens with others.
Assam - Robust Black Tea
Not only enjoyable for breakfast, it is also good for an afternoon pick-me-up. Add a little lemon juice and "WOW!"
Thanks alot - your anwesr solved all my problems after several days struggling
This has been my "go-to" tea for a few years, but I can't get it locally now. So, I went direct to the Republic. Wow! So much fresher and more flavorful! Really, REALLY good black tea, with just the right caffeine kick for me. It also brews nicely. What I mean is, if you measure with the same spoon, and fill the pot to the same level, you get the same strength tea, even if you get a phone call and let it brew ten minutes longer.
Our Daily Standard
WE may mix other teas with this for a variety of flavored drinks, but this is always our starting place. The absolute bedrock of our tea drinking tradition!
Great tea flavor
This tea is our favorite black tea. It is wonderful alone or works well blended with other teas to add a little extra flavor. My husband and I both reach for this one time and again.
Brewed strong in the morning...
...and I drink it through the day. I love it with a touch of honey and a splash of vanilla soymilk. I fill up an extra large travel mug to get me out the door, then I add ice to the half that's remaining by 10:30 and drink through lunch. I've loved this tea for more than a dozen years.
This is the BEST basic, go-to tea. Excellent flavor heavy or light, first pot or third.
This one is my go-to daily tea. I drink it plain for a strong, no-nonsense morning.
Best in the Morning
As an avid tea drinker (and coffee convert), boiling a pot of water and brewing tea is the very first thing I do every morning -- every! I drink a variety of teas from a variety of suppliers -- none of generic super market origin. If I had to pick a single variety for that first-in-the-morning cup, foregoing every other, I'd choose Republic of Tea's Assam Breakfast Full-Leaf Black Tea in a heartbeat, and never look back. I simply think it the most robust, best tasting, most satisfying morning tea out there.
Smooth and Full Flavored
I have tried several breakfast teas but this one is the smoothest. Great wake up without bitterness!
Assam has a new convert!
I opened the tin and let the aroma fill me. Oh, my gosh. The only thing better was my first sip--I have never tasted a better black tea! I am a convert.
My Fav Black Tea!
Go to black tea every morning with a dash of milk. PERFECT. Worth getting out of bed for!
