This is TGFOP grade, meaning that is comes from the golden-colored tips of the tea leaves. (TGFOP stands for “Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe”)
Our Behora Assam tea has a robust, full-bodied flavor. It pairs well with any number of foods, from chocolate to cheese, breakfast to steak.
To prepare your tea, boil freshly-drawn water and steep 1-2 tsp. leaves for 3-5 minutes (depending on your desired strength). You can enjoy your Assam plain or perhaps with a dash of milk, sugar, or honey.
As for what to pair it with, the English often enjoy it with scones and jam, or steak and meat pie. It is a highly flexible tea.
You can also drink it iced. The taste mellows and deepens when prepared with ice, so that it changes slightly in character. Many people enjoy it this way.
Assam is known for its robust character and lasting punch. While it has not the highest caffeine content, this tea is well-known amongst gourmet tea gourmands. We recommend sipping our Behora Assam while studying or doing any late-night work.
This tea is picked at height of June, right around Midsummer / Summer Solstice. For this reason, it captures the energies of Midsummer. It is a powerful amplifier of other herbs, and can be used alongside them for beneficial effects. Sip this tea before doing your meditation / spellwork, to get a boost from that Midsummer energy (not to mention the caffeine)!
