Our First Flush teas are the pride of our collection: a series of extraordinary single origin teas, selected from the very first harvest of the year.
This First Flush Assam is a lighter, fresher version of traditional Assam, crafted with the youngest leaves for an unparalleled delicacy of flavour.
Assam was one of the first teas to be cultivated by the British back in the 19th century, so you may recognise the malty notes of a typical English breakfast blend. However, we think the lightness of this First Flush variety has a certain elegance which makes it perfect for afternoon tea.
