Tea tips

What kind of Assam would make a perfect cup of tea for you? Here are some points to consider when buying Assam:

  • First flush/ Second flush. These are two harvesting seasons in Assam. First harvest (flush) is in spring, second flush delivers more flavorful summer tea.
  • Single Estate/Garden Tea. These are elite of the Indian Teas. Produced from a single tea garden and often processed, packed, and shipped directly from the source, these are the freshest, highest quality teas available on the market.
  • Popular Blends. Assam Black teas are robust, full-bodied and make a great base for some of the most popular tea blends in the world including English Breakfast, Earl Grey & Chai teas.
