From The Steeping Room

This first flush 2022 Assam from Kathaldanga Village, Assam is naturally farmed with no pesticides or industrial chemical inputs. The tea is entirely handmade and handpicked on a very small, family run farm.

The tea has a really lovely round body with notes of bright peach and honey. It doesn’t need milk at all but if you put some in you may get some caramel notes with the addition.

First flush 2022

Had this morning at work. A rich and textured Assam with balanced bitterness, acidity and astringency. Dark, dark teak, leather and yellow cherries are most prominent, while malt and a touch of prune take backseat in this Assam. Definitely good for 2 steeps. I didn’t try a third.

Another trip to Upper Assam courtesy of derk.

This is a very non-traditional Assam. Nothing builder-y about it. Straight off the steep, I was picking up a little mineral-water tang (which always makes me wonder if the tumbler wasn’t washed properly—around our house, you never know), but after it cooled a bit, there was definitely a little peachy flavor tap-dancing in the background.

Enjoy this in a proper teacup, not a beat-up and questionably handled work tumbler ;)
