Assam Dikom tea: a well-made Assam

Having a wiry leaf with golden flowery tips and traditional malty, yet light flavour, Assam Dikom tea produces a richly coloured and malty infusion . The flavour is brisk and bright and lightly sweet. Use one teaspoon per cup and one for the pot with freshly boiling water and infuse for five minutes.

Assam is one of the most important tea producing regions of the world. The Dikom tea garden is based in the south-east of the Assam region in India's north east and here is the native home of Camelia Assamica. The Sessa river flows 1,800 miles from the Himalayas to the Ganges and goes through the Dikom tea estate. The Bodo-Kacharies tribe named this estate Dikom because they found the water uniquely sweet. In the Bodo language "Di" means water and "Kom" means sweet. The garden is planted in 70% clones which contributes to the complexity of the Dikom tea. Dikom is considered one of Assam's best tea estates.

Sourcing our tea

We can therefore guarantee the quality and origin of each tea and that it conforms to UK food and drink health regulations and our own demanding grading requirements.

The benefits of loose leaf tea

This loose leaf tea enables the full flavour characteristics of the tea to infuse. This tea is chosen for its high grade which imparts the flavour and aroma characteristics for which this tea is best known. A little extra time is necessary when infusing large leaf grades but you will be rewarded with a superior, more balanced cup. You will be well rewarded for your patience!

  2. S Parton

    This is one of the finest Assams I have tried
    Light tea, perfect after a heavy meal

  3. Chris (verified owner)

    First tasting of this Assam. Dry and quite astringent, but very refreshing. The perfect breakfast drink.

  4. Mr KRZYSTOWSKI (verified owner)

    Excellent service. Product as described. Highly recommend.

  5. David Stuart Robson (verified owner)

    Service: An excellent variety of teas, reasonable prices and delivery makes doing business with Grey’s Teas attractive.

  6. Robert Dixon (verified owner)

    Service: very good service

  7. Rupert Knowles (verified owner)

    Service: The company provides a very efficient service and fills a gap in the market: it is very difficult to buy interesting loose-leaf teas in supermarkets.
    Also the company has not been tempted to follow the current fad for flavoured teas, apart from traditional jasmine and bergamot.

  8. Anthony L Flynn

    Service: Great product, fast delivery

    Another fine tea from an extensive and expanding range

  14. Sarah Pitt (verified owner)

    This tea tastes sublime. It is quite a light Assam so because I like a stronger brew generally, I leave it to steep for a bit longer. Then it’s just right.
