Assam Harmutty TGFOP1: one of the best tea gardens in Assam.

The Assam Harmutty garden was established in 1870 and located in the Brahmaputra valley of Assam. Harmutty is a well made, tippy tea producing a well rounded, smooth cup with an earthy forresty character. This mid-season picking has enough astringency to make for a compelling start to a day. Use one teaspoon per person and one for the pot. Use freshly boiled water and infuse for four minutes.

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.

Delivery options

  • Our standard shipping is second class post unless you choose an alternative option.
  • Free UK shipping is available for orders over £30 and free first class post can be chosen for orders over £50.
  • At the checkout you may choose to receive a free, full-colour, eight-page guide to our tea.

    I cannot rate this tea more highly. Superior to anything I have purchased in the past.
    The overall impression of Greys teas is one of swift response and polite and professional service combined with amazing choice and wonderful flavours.
    All my tea orders are now channelled through this superb company.

    Classic Assam malty note – full bodied. Doesn’t appreciate over-brewing.

    Service: Excellent advice, service and product. Richard was very patient with me as a novice leaf tea consumer, he was happy to explain the difference in the teas and to take into account my budget. The teas were a lot fresher than those from supermarkets or national chains

    Rupert Knowles

    Service: Too many emails and promotions. I buy tea when we run out! For everyday drinking we use Sainsbury’s or Waitrose tea bags. They also make an excellent cuppa.
    Vendor response: We send only two promotional emails each month to customers. Should you wish not to receive these you are can opt-out at the foot of those emails.
    Our English Breakfast is not a strong tea. It contains some Darjeeling for a little lightness.

    Product: This is my favourite weekend tea – You really do go Ahhhhh with the first sip
    Service: Great company, Great Tea – Range of my favourite teas a little limited this order due to no stock. But what is available was good.
    Vendor response: We have just received a new shipment of Assam and more will arrive on Monday. I am pleased that you like our range of teas.

    Paul Driver

    Product: This is a good Assam with plenty of character, a good morning brew. It does not have the full malty flavor that I prefer in an Assam tea but still a respectable tea!
    Service: A fast efficient service from a company providing a good selection of teas
    Vendor response: I see that as well as trying Haijan you have also previously bought Keemun Mao Feng and Peony. You may want to try the Hoa Ya A and B and Jhin Hao.

    Product: There is a good balance of flavour to this Assam tea without being too strong.
    Service: Very good choice of tea with excellent service. A quick guide to the best brewing of the tea would be helpful on the back of the packets.
    Vendor response: Thank you for your positive comments. We do try to give brewing guidance on the pack label where this is critical, rather than a matter of taste. General brewing tips can be found on our pages make a ‘Perfect Black Tea’ or ‘Make Perfect Green or White Tea’ linked from the top navigation bar of our website.

    Rose M J Fulton

    Product: Not particularly impressed by this tea. Quite frankly I’ve purchased better off the local supermarket shelf. I found it ‘flat’ and lacking in flavour.
    Service: To date, perhaps I’m making ‘poor’ choices but on the whole I’ve not found the teas I’ve purchased have been on the button. They often feel tired. I’m sorry, but that’s how I feel.
    Vendor response: This Assam is a favourite amongst several of our customers. It is a great malty tea and we have never received comment of flatness or lack of flavour but we are however concerned by your experience. We would be happy to exchange it for an alternative tea. Please ensure that you are using freshly drawn and boiled water; filtered if your water is hard. This can make a significant difference to the taste of your teas.

    Service: The website needs to reflect the pricing better I.e. The drop down should price per weight band that you sell
    Vendor response: I am puzzled. Each product page does, have a drop-down menu showing the packing combinations for that tea such as 125g or 250g, packet or tin caddy.
