Assam tea is a black tea named after the region of its growth, Assam, India. It is manufactured specifically from the plant Camellia sinensis var assamicaThe Assam tea plant is indigenous to Assam—initial efforts to plant the Chinese varieties in Assam soil did not succeed and Assam tea is now mostly grown at lower altitude. It is known for its body, briskness, malty flavour and strong bright colour. Assam teas, or blends containing caffeine, are often sold as "breakfast" teas. For instance, Irish breakfast tea, a maltier and stronger breakfast tea, is made with Assam tea leaves.

The Assam tea region is known for producing the CTC (Crush, Tear, Curl) variety of teas. Popular grades produced in Assam include the whole leaf, broken leaf, fannings, and dust grades. Of these, only the latter three can be produced via the CTC method. The black teas produced in this region are renowned globally for their strong, bold, brisk, and malty flavors with dark liquor, making it an ideal pick for a breakfast tea.
