Assam (Quality Belt Region) Black Tea

Ideal in the morning with milk, this tea from the Quality Belt Region in India is an excellent example - plucked during Assam's renowned second season of harvest, the second flush, with TGFOP1* leaves. It's a voluptuous tea that tastes malty and full-bodied. 

Food pairing: Hearty breakfasts, sweet spiced tea cakes, carrot cakes, red meats and  strong cheese.

Fun fact: The state of Assam in India,  also known as “The land of the one-horned rhino”, started shipping tea from India to London in 1838, where its popularity immediately flourished. It remains a household favourite to this day.

Brewing instructions: 1-2 teaspoons of loose leaf or 1 pyramid bag. 3 mins at 90-95ºC without milk, 3-5mins at 95-100ºC with milk. Just turn your kettle off before boiling if you don't have a temperature controlled kettle.

Ingredients: Black Tea. Contains Caffeine.

* TGFOP1  stands for “Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe 1”… Or in other words a sign of high quality tea  made from the end bud and the first two leaves of each new shoot with a large proportion of golden tips. The 1 stands for highest quality leaves within this classification.

Until at least the end of June, £1 for every large loose leaf pack sold will be donated to Regenerate-RISE, supporting vulnerable isolated elderly including supply boxes due to Coronavirus.

    A premium home-brewed coffee is still less expensive than a cafe

    Issue: With the continuing economic uncertainty that COVID brings, many are choosing to tighten the purse strings and are replacing luxuries with cheaper, more basic products.For more: Comunicaffe International
    ...However, whilst the purse strings may need to tighten, a premium home-brewed coffee or tea is still less expensive than buying individual drinks on the go. Many have already taken the time to improve their brewing skills since the outbreak, and so now have the equipment and know-how to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience from home. If this isn't you, then there really is no better time to start, and better yet, at GUSTATORY you’ll find plenty of affordable options from our range of independents to support you in doing just that. Easy to find and it won’t cost you the earth for these to be delivered.
