Product Description

Nahorhabi Assam TGFOP1 CL 2nd Flush Black Tea is true to the flavor profile you've come to expect from fine Assam teas. Malty, plummy, with no bitterness or astringency. The dry tea is mostly black leaves with some tan (“golden”) leaves. A tippy tea that yielded one of the best tastes for Assam black teas we have experienced. When infused for 3 minutes in water heated to a boil, the tea had that malty, plummy flavor expected by lovers of Assam teas. We enjoyed every mouthful straight without any sweetener and definitely without milk. We infused a second teaspoon of leaves in a separate trial, this time for 5 minutes. Some slight edginess in the aftertaste came through but nothing too alarming, and a touch of milk and sweetener brought out a deeper malty character. Such a delight for those of you who love Assam black tea!

How to Prepare

Water heated to 212°F.

Infuse 1 tsp in 8 oz water for 3 minutes for a lighter taste and 5 minutes for a stronger taste.

Good to serve either straight or "British style" (with milk and sugar); also good chilled or over ice.

About Assam Teas

Assam teas are largely produced as CTC (crush, tear, curl) and generally considered low quality. They are mainly the Camellia sinensis assamica varietal family, with leaves that are generally larger and tougher than the Camellia sinensis sinensis varietal family. In CTC form they are especially prone to infuse up a bitter cup, so the expedient of adding milk and sugar came along (a habit adopted by many in Britain, as well). Orthodox processing is also done but in smaller quantities. They can be less prone to bitterness, which is wonderful for making iced teas and for drinking the tea hot without anything added to it. They can also serve, though, as a great base for flavored black teas.
