A new kind of Assam: these teas from the Nath family and were the first Assam teas available in Europe to be grown by small farmers who also process their own leaves rather than selling them on to larger plantations. Pranabjyoti and Pallabjyoti Nath have made this special tea possible not only by their own pioneering farming and producing, but also by joining forces with other small tea farmers.
This is a tippy batch of second flush Assam teas from one farmer, Pallabjyoti Nath who farms 7 acres of land in total using no artificial fertilisers or pesticides, producing only a few hundred kilos of tea each per year. The appearance of the leaf is thick and wiry with a small proportion of golden tips, while the flavour rich and malty, with mouth puckering tannins on the finish that can be smoothed out with milk.
