Sipped for its malty flavor, the Assam tea is a black tea that’s one of the most well-known teas in the world. Born and brought up in the tea estates of Assam, the Assam tea is the choicest ruby-red beverage that can be served for breakfast as well as lunch. Best of all, it goes well with any and every cuisine. Whether you like it hot or cold, it’s a great choice for everyday drinking. But the catch, we meant the ‘taste’ lies in the way it is brewed. In this blog, Maharani Chai, manufacturer of the best high quality tea, will tell you how to make a perfect cup of Assam tea. See you in the kitchen!
How To Make Hot Assam Tea Properly?
Here’s how you can make hot Assam Tea for yourself:
STEP 1: Boil water
Since tea is made with just water and tea leaves, use filtered water instead of tap water if possible. If using an electric kettle, then set it to 208°F.
STEP 2: Warm up the teapot
Pour a little freshly boiled water into the teapot. Swirl it around and then throw the water out. If you don’t warm up the teapot, there will be a big temperature drop while brewing this premium quality tea.
STEP 3: Get some Assam Tea in Roorkee. Put it into a teapot and add hot water
To make tea stronger, always add more tea instead of brewing it for longer. A longer brew time will only make your tea bitter, not stronger.
STEP 4: Cover the teapot and steep for 5 minutes
Make sure to keep the top securely on the teapot to make sure the tea stays hot.
STEP 5: Strain Assam leaves and pour hot tea into a teacup
To sweeten your tea, add sugar, honey, or date syrup.

How To Make It Iced?
Here’s how you can make cold brew Assam Tea:
STEP 1: Get some Assam Tea in Roorkee. Along with it, add some water in a pitcher or glass container
Into a pitcher, put Assam tea and pour in cold or room temperature filtered water. Just like with hot tea, filtered water makes for the best-tasting cold brewed tea.
STEP 2: Refrigerate the pitcher
Cover the pitcher and put it in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours. This will enhance the taste of your gold leaf tea.
STEP 3: Strain and Sweeten it
Cold-brewed tea is already chilled, so you can add ice if you want but it’s not necessary. Cold-brewed Assam tea takes milk and sweeteners well. If you do want to sweeten it, simple syrup is the easiest to incorporate into your iced tea. Simple syrup is super easy to make at home, just mix equal parts sugar and hot water until the sugar dissolves.
Tips to Remember
While making a tasteful cup or pitcher of Assam tea, keep in mind these tips:
- Assam tea is perfect for adding milk since it balances out the astringency and enhances its sweetness.
- Assam is a great choice for blending if you like to make your chai latte.
- Don’t over brew — steep for 5 minutes, not a minute longer.
