- Region: Assam
- Producer: Chardwar Estate
- Season: 2nd flush 2020
- Recipe: 3g | 150ml | 90°C | 3 mins (more below)
- Infuse the same tea leaves up to 2 times
This Black Tea comes from Chardwar Estate in Assam; an organic estate owned by Gautam and his family. The finest Assam teas are picked in the 2nd flush. That’s the May/June season. It’s when the desirable malty notes are at their best.
This Assam is rich, full bodied, and malty. This is the tea to drink if you enjoy strong black teas in the morning. Indeed, the best part of a breakfast blend is usually the Assam component; although blends usually include lesser seasons rather than a pure 2nd flush. A tea like this is also a classic match for cake and other patisserie.
When infusing, use 3g (1 tsp) per 150ml (a teacup or glass). Infuse with water just off the boil (90C) for 3 mins. If you prefer a stronger tea, you can use more leaf (adds intensity) or infuse for longer (increased tannins).
Storage and Ageing
Store in a cool dry place. Assam teas change character with time. They are very good young and fresh but we prefer them after about a year. The age reduces the tannins and adds some sweet floral complexity. You can drink this tea for up to 5 years after picking.
