House Assam Blend 125g Packet

House Assam Blend 125g Packet  £3.50

A strong small leaf with a hint of proper Assam 'malt flavour' that takes milk well. The British started growing tea in the Assam plains along the Brahmaputra River Valley in Northern India in 1840. This recipe has hardly changed from Mr Whittard's 1960s recipe, using mainly neatly made orthodox (the old-fashioned rolling method) tea leaves for their quality and character. Usually drunk strong with milk. Boil freshly drawn cold water, warm the pot. Use 3 to 4 teaspoons of leaves or 2 to 3 teabags in a 6-cup teapot. Brew for 3-5 minutes. Pour the milk into your cup before the tea. Alternatively brew one teabag in a mug or cup. Remove the teabag when the tea is the strength you require. Add milk afterwards. Pure Assam tea from Northern India GBP2.80 per 100g
