From Simpson & Vail

In the northeastern state of Assam in India, along the Brahmaputra River grow the hearty, malty Assam teas. The heavy rainfall and hot, humid day time temperatures in this area create the perfect green house like environment for growth, as well as helping to create the unique taste found only in Assam teas. Their distinct flavor can be enjoyed “as is”; however, Assam teas are often used in conjunction with other teas to create numerous blends, specifically breakfast teas.

The Harmutty tea estate is one of the oldest tea gardens in Assam, dating back to the 1870’s. It is located in the NorthEast region of Assam, in the North Lakimpur district alongside the Dikrong river and bordering the forest of Arunachal Pradesh. The name Lakimpur is thought to be derived from “Lakshmi”, the name for the Goddess of Prosperity.

The golden tippy, uniform, well-styled leaves brew to a smooth and malty cup with classic Assam boldness.

Lazy Saturday breakfast treat. The sample Michelle sent my way was marked for a two minute steep. I was a little bepuzzled, but set the timer accordingly. Longer would have turned it into a cup of mud. As it is, we have a lovely malty, bready cup that I’m thoroughly enjoying. Thank you, friend!


Welcome, this one is quite the awesome tea :)

Another tea I picked up at Simpson and Vail and I like this one! A bit nutty to start and coppery and malty to finish. Very little astringency to this cup, it would blend well with other black teas. I must say this is my second favorite awesome tea from S&V, and I’d be tempted to purchase more if Beesakopie remains out of stock.

Flavors: Malty, Metallic, Nutty


Someday I want to learn the proper pronunciation of all these interesting tea estates!
