Description

Assam Duflating Second Flush STGFOP1 2018

This Assam Duflating Second Flush is from a garden well-known for its slow-growing cultivars which yield a tea with an abundance of young golden leaves. It has a rich, fruity maltiness and gentle spiciness with a slight sweetness. These are qualities for which Duflating is highly regarded. Use one teaspoon per cup and one for the pot with freshly boiling water and infuse for five minutes. Perfect at breakfast and as a mid-morning indulgence. Drink with a little milk.

Tea from Grey’s Teas

Our teas are loose leaf and we specialise in large leaf grades. All are made using traditional orthodox methods. Our teas are from named tea gardens or defined areas of origin.

Sourcing our tea

Assam Duflating Second Flush has been chosen for its distinctive, balanced flavour, aroma and appearance. Our tea is carefully sourced from long-established shippers. We can therefore guarantee the quality and origin of each tea and that it conforms to UK food and drink health regulations and our own demanding grading requirements.

The benefits of loose leaf tea

This loose leaf tea enables the full flavour characteristics of the tea to infuse. This tea is chosen for its high grade which imparts the flavour and aroma characteristics for which this tea is best known. A little extra time is necessary when infusing large leaf grades but you will be rewarded with a superior, more balanced cup. You will be well rewarded for your patience!

Packing options

There are generally several packing options to choose from. These are 60 grams, 125 grams and 250 grams, the default being 125 grams in a packet. Our silver-coloured packets are a triple laminate of paper, foil and cellophane, specifically designed for tea. Alternatively, you can select a tin caddy for your tea. These square, silver coloured caddies have hinged lids. Again, 60 gram, 125 gram and 250 gram options are generally available as options which can be selected from the drop-down list. Packets and caddies have full-colour labels.

    I am sorry the second batch did not seem to you as not as good as the first. The second was 2018; it appears we did not up-date our label which we have now done.

    I am a little bemused – my tea of choice is always black – builder style! I have worked my way through Greys selections from Assam, Kenya, Ceylon and China over several years now and find Harmutty to be consistently my no1 choice.However, a small packet of Duflating 2nd Flush 2016 earlier this summer vied for top place and lead me to order a larger pack costing c£33. Sadly, it does not have the same malty richness as the first batch – there is a slight bitterness. I can only assume the two packets were from differing batches – albeit both are labelled as 2016 ( not 2018 as itemised above)
    Think I will stick to Harmutty…

    Yes, very drinkable, rich, malty and full bodied, but smooth and refreshing too. I need to order more! 5 star tea.

    This tea is just as pretty in the leaf as the photo: lovely orange strands among the black. It is VERY drinkable, the malty flavour to the fore. Personally, I drink it without milk, possibly a little weaker than recommended, in a pint beerglass (they never crack). I also top the pot up after the first glassful. A pleasant adjunct to Dickens or George Elliot.
