This is one of the most popular teas. Full bodied, sharp with hints of walnut - great for that morning cup!
Selected by our resident tea taster.
Hailing from the North east of India Assam is a very well regarded tea growing region who can enjoy wonderfully tippy teas.
A Grade (superior quality) : FTGFOP Fine Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe.
Can be enjoyed with or without milk.
Preparation: Use approximately 1 heaped teaspoon per cup. Pour over freshly boiled water and cover. Leave to stand for 3-4 minutes. Dispose of the used tea leaves.
Use with a tea strainer or tea pot to avoid the mess.
This is still the best of teas but is not as strong as when I last bought it quite a few years ago. I suppose all teas vary from year to year.
Not as golden as the picture, but the resulting cup of tea is gloriously refreshing
I just love this tea. I buy it in kilo bags.
I have always loved Assam tea, this one surpasses the many others I have tried from other suppliers.
I will be purchasing Assam A from Pumphreys from now on.
