Great start to the day!

The Tippy Assam reminds me of tea at breakfast as a child. My mother was born in Darjeeling and always had good leaf tea to drink, a different one at breakfast and "tea time". It's a pleasantly sturdy and malty flavour without being too strong.

Brewing Instructions

The table below shows the approximate brewing/infusing times for the different tea types.

It assumes around a 2.5 to 3g serving but it is not an exact science so experiment to find the perfect brew time to suit you.

It is best to use freshly boiled water - so if you've got some water left in your kettle from before - pour it out and start again!
