Assam First Flush Tea is a lighter, fresher version of traditional Assam, providing a less strong and more delicate drink.
Assam, the land of storm clouds and rolling fertile plains, is where a small-leafed, strong-tasting wild tea was found by the British in the 19th century. Assam First Flush uses leaves picked early in the season, giving the tea its distinctly youthful taste.
Our Assam First Flush still has the maltiness and flavour of an Assam but a lighter strength, making it an ideal drink for the afternoon.
Ideally warm the pot first with a splash of hot water. Use one teaspoon (around 2g) per cup and always use freshly drawn and boiled water. Allow to brew for 3-5 minutes according to taste. Can be drunk with or without milk.
