A wonderfully intense Indian tea with a robust character typical of the best Assams. A great breakfast tea which stands up well to a touch of milk.
A strong, robust tea from North East India, this Assam fannings cut is big on flavour and value. A great breakfast choice which stands up well to a touch of milk.
Brewing the best cup. Use a big tablespoon of loose leaf tea per pot and always use freshly boiled water. Allow to brew for 3-5 minutes according to taste, depending on your preference for strength. Enjoy with or without milk.
The Assam tea bush grows in a lowland region, in the valley of the Brahmaputra River; an area of clay soil rich in the nutrients of the floodplain. Along both sides of this river lie the rolling plains of the world's largest tea growing area, along with the highest yield per acre.
The climate varies between a cool, arid winter and a hot, humid rainy season - conditions ideal for growing tea. This tropical climate contributes to Assam's unique malty taste, a feature for which this tea is well known.
Indian Black Tea
I was pleasantly suprised with this household tea - a flat teaspoon is the perfect amount for an average sized mug, and it's got a lovely, well balanced flavour. It packs a bit of a punch but not too much, and I prefer it to much more expensive teas.
Perfectly decent cuppa, but a little flat/one dimensional compared to, say, the English breakfast tea.
I love this tea to start the day: malty, strong and flavourful. The first sip is heaven! My regular brew for afternoon tea too. With a piece of cake this tea (without sugar) perfectly balances the sweetness. I absolutely cannot run out.
This has become my everyday tea and I absolutely love it. So much nicer than anything that comes from a bag!
As usual I’m delighted with my Tugboat delivery. We mix Household with English Breakfast for our own great value, tasty everyday tea!
