Assam teas peak in the Second Flush, harvested in the summer months of May and June. Glenburn Estate's Khongea Plantation in the Brahmaputra River Valley produces a distinctive assam with a large proportion of chunky golden tips. A warm brown liquor (the beverage after steeping) greets you in the cup, the taste of a rich spicy and malty character. Assam tea partners nicely with milk.



Glenburn recommends preparing this tea with 2.5g* to 200ml (7 fl.oz.) water. Teacup yields & price-per-teacup are calculated on that basis. 
Your own yields may vary depending on whether you like more or fewer tea leaves to your water quantity for strength, or the size of your cups.  For example: *Don't have pocket gram scales in your kitchen? Think 1 teaspoon tea leaves per English teacup or increase to 2 teaspoons tea leaves per typical American coffee mug.  Obviously, if you go the route of the larger American coffee mug instead of the 7oz teacup, you won't get as many mugs of tea out of the container as we project for the 7oz teacup.

Glenburn recommendations to prepare:
2.5 grams in 200 ml (7 fl-oz) water at 100°C (212°F) for 5-6 minutes.
or: 1 tea spoon per English tea cup or: 2 tea spoons per American coffee mug

Customer Reviews

Average rating from 1 reviews: 5.0
Decidedly ambrosialAn aristocratic tea with a subtle melding of flavors. Beautifully balanced, smooth, mellow, spicy and floral, yet the floral blends seamlessly rather than dominates. There is a certain delicacy here not characteristic of a classic Assam. For me, it lacks a certain vigor that I prefer for morning, but it is a soothing and delectable afternoon or after dinner libation … think dessert.
