Assam Harmutty First flush 2021: from the renown Harmutty garden
The Harmutty garden was established in 1870 and located in the Brahmaputra valley. It is usually picked in May, having a wonderfully inviting aromatic aroma. This Assam Harmutty First Flush is a STGFOP1 grade. It has plenty of golden tips and a delicate, well rounded malty taste. A top Assam. Use one teaspoon per cup and one for the pot. Infuse for four minutes. To be drunk without milk.
As a clonal tea the tea bushes from which these leaves are picked are cloned from the root-stock of the original tea plants native to Assam and cultivated since tea was first planted in the region.
