Little Yellow Teapot Ponders: The Chemistry of Tea

Our Guide to Assam Teas & Gardens Is Here at Last!

Well, dear humans, months and months of work by my ‘she’ human have finally resulted in the completion of our Guide to Assam Teas & Gardens. Assam tea is our favorite here. Two we like to keep in stock are Lochan Gold from Lochan Tea Ltd. and Bihu Bold from Shona’s Assam Tea. I steeped up plenty of each to keep my ‘she’ human alert as she worked through the night and into the wee hours of the morning.

This guide goes far beyond anything previously posted on this site and includes an extensive (but possibly not complete) list of the tea gardens as well as information on some of the top tea companies. You will also see information on how the tea leaves are processed and tips on preparing.
