From Twinings

From the Camellia Sinensis Assamica, this is a 2nd Flush Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe grade, which means that the tea has been sorted to contain just the tips of the golden yellow end buds and the first leaf of each shoot. 2nd flush means it is the second “pick” of the year, often considered to be the best.
Breakfast Tea Ritual – 2nd Flush Assam
Assam is a black tea named after the region where it is produced, an area south of the eastern Himalayas, roughly the size of Ireland.

It’s a rich and robust tea with a delicious malty flavour.

Twinings describe this as a rich and robust tea with a delicious malty flavour. They also recommend it with Sausages and Mash. I can’t help but think they have the wrong tea. When made with 1 measure of tea in a pot with boiling water, infused 3 minutes and drank black this tea has a delicate smoothness with a nose of slight caramel. The taste is powerful but subtle and it lingers on the palate. No hint of the astringency that I usually associate with Assam. This is really good tea and worth the premium price tag for 2nd flush.
