The best Assam tea is harvested 3rd week of April.
Tea sommeliers compete for highest nutient, full-leaf, Assam tea, harvested
March through April. Cold weather in Assam makes it unsuitable for harvesting tea
November to March - pretty silent period for tea farmers. In the meantime, tea leaves
accumulate nutrients. Come Bohaag (spring), when first flush tea
is available, everyone wants a share of it.
Tea is best consumed closest to its production - like any other plant!
In summer right after harvesting, is when the best tea is meant to be enjoyed. It's pretty
unfortunate that the most nutrituous, delicious, and prized production from Assam ends up
spending its youth in tea auctions throughout the summer. Most first flush tea available today
actually reaches the customer at least 2 months after plucking, and continues to live in retail
shelves for up to 2 years.
Join us in the revolution to enjoy the most nutritious Assam tea, earliest.
