Tea from Assam - India's most important tea-growing region 

Assam, a plateau in northern India on both sides of the Brahmaputra, is the largest contiguous tea-growing region in the world. The first harvest period at the beginning of the year begins after a long break in February with the first flush harvest. 
 However, the growing region is primarily famous for the strong results of the second flush harvest in May/June - characterful, malty teas, dark in the cup and delicious with candy and cream. Unlike the less characteristic plucks in the rainy season from around July to October, which lose their flavourful strength under the influence of the heavy monsoon rains blowing in from the Indian Ocean, the hand-crafted premium qualities fetch connoisseur prices.

Assam's cup colours

Assam First Flush

Assam First Flush tastes fragrant, fresh, flowery and somewhat spicier than Darjeeling First Flush and has a light, golden yellow cup colour.

Assam Second Flush

The best, highest quality and typical Assams are harvested during the second flush period between the end of May and the end of June. The teas taste strong, spicy and malty, with a copper-red to dark brown cup colour.

East Frisian teas

East Frisian blends do not grow in East Frisia, but at best derive their tart, strong Frisian character from the significant addition of good Assam second flush - broken or leaf.
