We'd suggest brewing lightly to appreciate its layered honeyed flavours, but a stronger steeping creates a wonderfully dark, almost treacle-toned cup, perfectly matched with milk.

Harvested in late spring (known as the “second flush”), our loose Assam TGFOP1 2nd Flush has a large unbroken leaf and plenty of buds and golden tips: in other words, “Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe”. It may be rather a mouthful – but one sip of this superbly rich and malty brew and you might just remember the name..
