Our 2019 2nd flush Assam comes from the Tezpore and Gogra Tea Estate lying on flat plains north of the Brahmaputra and just south of mountainous Wildlife Reserves where hornbills, tigers and elephants roam.

Great on its own, however this smooth tea works in great harmony with many of our other teas - making for fun blending at home. Works well with our Ceylon Homadola and Darjeeling 1st flush!

This second flush Assam has loads of flavour and is an excellent all-rounder. It is a good strong tea, but never overstews.
