Description

Assam Harmutty 2nd flush: from the great 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 2nd Flush is a TGFOP1 grade. It has plenty of golden tips and a bold, distinctly rich, well rounded malty taste. A top Assam. Use one teaspoon per cup and one for the pot. Infuse for four minutes. Can be drunk with or without milk. Initially, we suggest you try without.

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.

The benefits of loose leaf tea

  • This is a carefully sourced tea chosen for its distinctive, balanced flavour.
  • Loose leaf tea enables the full flavour characteristics of the tea to infuse.
  • The tea is chosen for its high grade which imparts the flavour and aroma characteristics for which this tea is best known.
  • A little patience is required when infusing large leaf grades but you will be rewarded with a superior, more balanced cup.

Which size to choose

  • There are several packing options: 60grams, 125grams and 250grams – the standard being of 125 grams in a packet.
  • You can select packets or a tin caddy with hinged lid which can be selected from the drop-down options.
  • Our silver-coloured packets are a triple laminate of paper, foil and cellophane, specifically designed for tea.

How to look after this tea

  • Store the tea with care: ensure it is stored air-tight, away from heat, light, moisture and strong aromas.
  • Our standard best-before is one year.

    Product: Smooth,medium bodied Assam. Not very malty or distinctive. I think it may vary between batches depending when you order ( probably applies to all teas)
    Service: Very cluttered website. Difficult to find way back after adding something to the cart.
    Vendor response: We do try to make navigation of our large Tea Store and other pages on our website as easy as possible. We are looking at changing the page to which you are directed after having added an item to the basket so as to make shopping easier.

    The Diamond Jubilee has received good feedback since first blended in 2012. I am sorry that you were disappointed with it.

    Product: A bit disappointed with the dearer 2nd flush harmutty. I will go back to the harmutty mid season next time. No problem with quality, just taste that I am looking for.
    Service: . However Greys teas I find are good quality- the best I can find.

    Service: I ordered items in time for a birthday present but they were sent to the wrong address. We got them in the end but missed birthday.
    Vendor response: I am sorry, there was a typo with the address but we left a message as soon as we received yours and identified the problem. The order had been sent by courier for added security at no charge to you.

    Product: It has always been excellent in the past – this is the reason I continue buying from such a customer-unfriendly company
    Service: Yet again Greys have taken my order, cashed in my payment, sent this questionnaire but not delivered the tea!. I had to send 3 – increasingly annoyed – emails last time. When I buy tea from NBT of F&M it arrives without hassle the following day. Yet this virtually never happens with Greys
    Vendor response: I am sorry you have this view which is not reflected in the experience of the vast majority of our other customers. Your order was despatched within four days. There was some delay whilst we awaited additional stock. We have received no communication from you.

    Product: Given as a gift to an Assam lover so haven’t tasted.

    Stuart Bates

    Product: One of my favourite teas and have tasted previously, however the 2nd Flush was a new experience and is one that I will definitely return to. Full bodied with very little bitterness, this is a perfect morning tea, although I have enjoyed it at any time of day.
    Service: Grey’s are a fantastic source of good quality teas. The range of products is fantastic and the information provided on the website is spot-on.

    Product: Extremely good quality tea. Feel we are buying from an enthusiast. Rather than a purley money making enterprise
