This Assam has been carefully selected by our buyers to demonstrate the best features of this famous Indian tea: It produces a dark liquor with rich malt and creamy flavours. The 2nd flush or picking takes place in early June and is considered superior to other Assam flushes. It is perfect as a breakfast or afternoon tea. Assam production has improved significantly in quality in recent years and this tea shows good character and depth of flavor. A bold and robust tea that is relatively high in caffeine, this tea is a brisk pick-me-up at any time of day.
