Magnum Quality Teas
Tea is the most popular prepared beverage in the world. Originating from a shrub called Camellia Sinensis, the flavor profile of tea can be enhanced with an infusion of fruit or herbs that contains no Camellia Sinensis. The four basic types of true tea are Black, Ooling, Green and White.
Magnum Coffee Roastery has searched the planet and found the best teas. We found that several of the best teas originate from northern and southern India, in Darjeeling and Nilgiris , respectively. These highland regions are unmatched for producing exotic and aromatic teas, which we carefully cultivate for our tea loving customers.
We also grow several teas in Assam, India, south of the eastern Himalayas. The lush conditions of this lowland region yield bold, brisk and bright tea flavors. Assam is known for distinct black teas but the region also produces green and white teas with their unique characteristics.
In Darjeeling and Nilgiris
Several of our teas are only grown in one place in the world -- the area in northeastern India known as Darjeeling. This highland region is unmatched for producing the royalty of teas! Exotic and aromatic, we cultivate this rare tea for our tea loving customers.

Socially and Environmentally Responsible Teas.
Many of our exotic teas are grown by Chamong®, a Fair Trade-registered company. Founded in 1916, Chamong is one of India's oldest tea growers. Six generations in this family-owned company have produced some of the world's finest teas. The welfare of workers and families is our highest priority. Chamong provides housing, schools, medical facilities and places of worship. Children are required to go to school.
Stewardship of the earth is equally important. Chamong is fully committed to organic cultivation and is certified USDA organic. It is the largest producer of organic tea in Darjeeling and Assam. Environmentally-friendly projects have been instituted on Chamong's Darjeeling estates to tap natural water resources producing hydroelectric power, preventing deforestation and maintaining ecological balance. Chamong is more than a tea producing company, it is a community we are proud to partner with.
