Full-bodied smoothness and malty sweetness...

The strongest of all our Assams, this second flush tea from the hot, humid Harmutty tea gardens is nonetheless refreshing, superb as a breakfast brew with a dash of milk. Before becoming the first tea to be cultivated by the British, Assam originally grew wild on the vast flood plains of the Brahmaputra River - this particular variety is considered one of the very best in the region. We love its substantial full-bodied smoothness and malty sweetness.

Ingredients

Brew the perfect cup

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.

A note from Whittard

“I love staging themed afternoon teas, and at the moment I’m trying out some of our more bizarre blends, like Bohemian Raspberry and Blueberry Rooibos!”

- Cianne, Southampton Marlands Store Manager

India

The story goes that coffee was brought to India by the 17th century pilgrim Baba Budan, who smuggled seven coffee seeds out of Yemen on his return from Mecca. He planted the seeds in the lush southern state of Karnataka, the home of our much-loved Monsoon Malabar. Indian coffee tends to be sweet, creamy and low in acidity, maturing slowly in the shade to increase the natural sugars of the bean, and cultivated alongside crops of cardamom, cloves and cinnamon for a light hint of spice.

* * * * - a good tea by mo on 25th June 2015

This tea is good. It has a taste and a gentle flavor, but the batch I've received is not particularly "strong." Therefore I give it 4.

* * * * * Assam by David Hately on 13th April 2015

This variety of Assam has quickly become one of my regular teas - alongside Ceylon and Lasang Souchong.

* * * * * Assam by David Hately on 13th April 2015

This has quickly become one of my three regular teas, the other two being Lapsang Souchong and Ceylon.

* * * * * Excellent Assam by Martyn Thomas on 7th March 2015

This is our standard breakfast tea - I have been buying it for several years and the quality is always excellent. I only wish that they would sell it in larger packets, as I do not like destroying and wasting the 125g resealable pouches.

* * * * * Our breakfast brew by Jan Williams on 25th February 2015

Lovely tea for first thing! We often drink it it in bed with the newspaper. We may drink it later in the day and we find we use more of this than any other tea. Robust but not dusty.

* * * * - Good strong brew by David Martin on 12th January 2015

Strong with plenty of taste. Works well with soya milk.

* * * * - Not only for breakfast by Beverley Brown on 13th December 2014

This is my basic tea throughout the day. In fact I haven't tried it with milk. It is slightly nutty and robust. Also makes very good iced tea.
