NEW! Assam Gold
Assam Gold is one of the jewels in our collection. This is a whole leaf tea with lots of golden tipped leaves, and is full of malty, slightly sweet flavour.
It’s made in the summer, during the highest quality ‘second flush’ harvest. Only the top two leaves and young buds (or ‘tips’) are finely plucked from the bush to make this tea.
Unlike bigger, older leaves which turn black when oxidized, the young buds turn a beautiful golden colour when processed due to the rich antioxidants and lower amount of chlorophyll contained in the young buds.
Tea crafted from these buds or tips is highly prized due to its distinct malty flavour and the fact that only a small amount is produced each year. This is Assam at its very best.
Our Assam Gold comes direct from family-run Assam Tea Heritage and corresponds to a FTGFOP (Finest Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe) graded tea.
