Description

Assam Harmutty: 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.

    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

    Product:
    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.
