Origin Information

Nine small-scale tea growers in Assam, India are growing tea organically and processing their own tea and their garden sites. Their organic gardens are a haven for birds and microorganisms and their entrepreneurship is inspiring.

Flavour Profile: Sweet green tea with a smooth finish.

Description: This green tea is a rare find. Assam green has notes of honey in the cup.

Serving Tips: Use 1 heaping teaspoon for 500ml of boiling water. Let it steep for 4 minutes. One secret for this tea is to brew it twice. Traditionally, the first "rinse" is for the kids, the second is for the guests.
