Brewing Instructions

Serving size: 3-4g (1 teaspoon) per 200ml of water
Water temperature: Boiling water
Brewing time: 2-10 minutes depending on preference.

Assam is exceptionally unique and can be brewed several times, each time changing the flavour profile:

First Brew
The leaves have a strong, earthy aroma with a hint of mandarin, the aroma is less earthy and has a slightly bittersweet taste that can turn sour, resembling the taste of caramelised orange zest.

Second Brew
The liquor has a very nutty aroma that may be described as mildly relaxing by some. It retains the sourness of the first brew, tickling the tongue just right.

Third Brew
The tea leaves no longer retain their earthy aroma but now smell more like strawberry coulis and tastes like it too. It tastes sweet in the beginning and then turns sour, before tasting sweet again, and then sour again.
