Green tea is a least processed tea and contains high level of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals than oolong and black teas. In this post, I want to tell you 5 best Assam green tea brands which I’ve tasted individually.
Tea produced in Assam is unique in taste and flavor because of its unique geographical and climatic condition. Assam is the only place in the world where tea is grown at sea level under tropical climate. Assam tea is most often termed as breakfast tea because of its briskness and malty flavor.
Assam green tea is made from the unopened buds and tender leaves of boardleaf variety tea plants [Camellia Sinensis var. Assamica] which is a native plant of Assam and Yunnan province, China.
Brewed Assam green tea provides full-bodied, strong and brisk tea with pale-yellow liquor color. The malty flavor with a hint of muscatel grape like aroma make this green tea one of the best tea brands in the world.
Like green teas from other countries, Assam green tea also contains
antioxidants – epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), epicatechin gallate, epicatechins and flavanols;
vitamins – Thiamine (B1), Riboflavin (B2), Niacin (B3), Vitamin B6 and Vitamin C;
and, minerals- magnesium, manganese, potassium, sodium and iron. It also contains moderate level of caffeine, a central nervous system stimulant which helps us to keep our mind in alert mode.
Because of these components, green tea has become on of the healthiest beverages of the world which not only offers great taste and flavor but also provides great health benefits as well.
