Description

Here we have a typical high grade Assam in the form of Doomni Special Second Flush. This Assam comes from the Doomni tea estate in Nalbari District of Assam in India. Like with most teas from Assam, this is quite malty and mineral in flavour. This malty flavour is often described as the ‘British taste’.
Assam Doomni Special Second Flush is featured in our January 2015 Dark boxes. Second flush teas from Assam harvested in June-July tend to be more prized than other flushes due to the more distinguished full flavour profile with strong malty characteristics that many look for in a good Assam tea. And this Assam is no exception. The dry appearance of the leaf is very neat and it has plenty of gold tip. The resulting liquor is a bright dark red brown and the flavour is Assam’s typical mineral maltiness with fruity overtones. Very rich and distinct flavour that represents the best in Assam style teas – a great tea for that early morning drink!

Brew this tea with freshly boiled water for 3-5 minutes. This tea can be enjoyed with a little bit of milk if that’s your preferred way of taking Assam but also be sure to taste it without any additions first to fully appreciate the complex flavour profile of this great example of a Second Flush Assam.
