Assam Malt, 2nd Flush | Single Batch Black Tea

Assam Malt, 2nd Flush | Single Batch Black Tea

The Assams Collection comes from Chardwar Estate in Assam; an organic estate owned by Gautam and his family. The finest Assam teas are picked in the 2nd flush. That’s the May/June season. It’s when the desirable malty notes are at their best.

Assams are rich, full bodied, and malty. They are the ideal teas to drink if you enjoy strong black teas in the morning. Indeed, the best part of a breakfast blend is usually the Assam component; although blends usually include lesser seasons rather than a pure 2nd flush.

This batch (2020) is rich and complex, with the malty notes of a fine Assam, some aromatic woods, and hints of raspberry jam (a flavour note sought after by experienced tea tasters).
