Taylors of Harrogate Special Rare Tippy Assam Loose Tea lets you brew the perfect cup of this remarkable tea. Originating in the Brahmaputra Valley in northeast India and grown between sea level and 700 feet, this tea is picked during the second flush from July to September. Tippy Assam is full-bodied, with a rich, strong flavor. It has a malty taste and is very invigorating, making it perfect for your morning wake-up. Serve it with or without milk. Special Rare Tippy Assam comes in an elegant, reusable tin to help preserve freshness. Taylors is the recipient of the British Tea Councils Best Cup of Tea in England award, which ensures that Tippy Assam, like every tea they blend, is of the highest quality.

Product Description

Special rane. A rich, strong tea with a powerful character and intense colour. Our Tippy Assam is grown in the Brahmaptura valley, in north east India. It has been picked during the second flush from July to September and the high proportion of golden tips in the leaf is an indication of its exceptional quality. When brewed it reveals all the classic Assam character, a strong, malty full-bodies flavour, dark red liquor and wonderful aroma. Our tea buyer especially recommends it for serving at breakfast. Blended and packed in England.

Flavor Name: Lapsang SouchongSize Name: Pack of 2 Verified Purchase
I am a Lapsang Souchong fan. I enjoy the smokey flavor. This particular version has nice subtlety to its flavor but lacks the "smoke" I desire. I know most people are not fond of a "barbequed tea". This brand may be one of the best for those who wish to test Lapsang Souchong but don't desire a lot of smokey flavor. For true fans I would recommend the one from China Mist [[ASIN:B0000V1BEI Lapsang Souchong Whole Leaf Loose Black Tea].

Flavor Name: Lapsang SouchongSize Name: Pack of 2 Verified Purchase
Lapsang Souchong is what some might consider an acquired taste, because the smokiness and aroma of it are quite strong. Its aromatic reminiscence of woodsy smoke does not take away from the taste of the tea itself, which is rich, flavorful, and not at all bitter as one might suspect from the first overwhelming sniff. The taste is actually mellow and yet refreshing, the color a golden amber, and, as the reviewer below mentions, it is best when not steeped for too long. It's also best served without milk, as this takes away from the taste...but personal taste is personal taste.

I must admit, I am not what you'd call a lapsang souchong snob, but I have tasted several brands, and Taylors of Harrogate offer the best I've ever tried. Their tea is divine, and I'm going to order some more of their other teas.

Flavor Name: Ntingwe KwazuluSize Name: Pack of 1
Let me start by saying that I'm a lifelong tea drinker and I love tea, and I've tried all sorts.

I started out years ago with Lipton's before all these different designer brands and flavors came along. Black Ceylon tea was what they called it. Then when all these designer brands and flavors came out I tried all the exotic flavors I could get my hands on, mango, vanilla, raspberry, chocoloate, peach, whatever. I tried different brands, I tried expensive teas, cheap teas, organic teas, the standards such as Earl Grey, Darjeeling, Assam, etc.

Finally, I came back to this tea. It was like travelling around the world in a circle and coming back to the start. I love this tea because I've found all that other stuff, apple, peach, raspberry, just detracts from the true flavor of tea. This tea is just pure tea, without any other distracting flavors and that's what I love about it. A stong tea, a robust tea with full strong flavor, for a man (or a manly woman).

When I make it just right, the right temperature, the right strength, this is what I imagine Homer's nectar of the gods to be like. It's like Zeus brews me a cup, hands it over and says "here, drink this".

So far I have not been able to find another unadulterated tea with such a full and strong flavor. A 10/10.

Flavor Name: Imperial GunpowderSize Name: Pack of 2
Gunpowder tea is green tea, most of which comes from a city named Pingshui in the Eastern Chinese province of Zhejiang, south of the Yangtse River Delta, where it has been cultivated for centuries and is known as the "green pearl" of tea. Pingshui tea market records date as far back as the Tang Dynasty (AD 618 - 907). The area's gunpowder tea was an important tribute traditionally given to the Chinese emperors; and with the growing trade volume between China and the West it also acquired an increasing number of lovers in Europe. Particularly during the second half of the 19th century, when gunpowder tea export reached its peak, its price on the London market was second only to then-popular Wu Yi Oolong (also from China). Even today, Zhejiang Province still proudly calls itself "home of silk and tea" for its two primary natural products.

The name "gunpowder" derives from the tea's elaborate method of processing, which traditionally lasts several hours and during which the tea leaves are withered, steamed or stir-fried and individually rolled into small pellets. Early foreign traders mistook these pellets for gunpowder or gunshot.

Gunpowder tea has a delicate aroma with a slightly smokey note. It should *always* be enjoyed without milk or cream.

Flavor Name: China Rose PetalSize Name: Pack of 2
The first thing you notice when you open up the tin is the aromatic floral scent of rose but it's not overpowering. Once brewed, the tea is a deep red color and rosy tasting. It makes for a mellow cup of tea and is easy drinking and light in caffeine. You can enjoy a whole pot full here and this makes it great company with a long novel. Definitely not a bracing breakfast style tea if that's what you're looking for but if you like subtle aromatic teas, this is a sure bet. Doesn't get bitter even with oversteeping. A real pleasure. If you like this, try lychee congou if you can track it down. Very aromatic and mellow as well.

Flavor Name: Scottish BreakfastSize Name: Pack of 2
Given that it was a Scotsman -- a 19th century Edinburgh tea master named Drysdale -- who first marketed his particular blend under the name "breakfast tea" (and given that Drysdale's creation would soon come to be (mis)appropriated by tea houses south of the border, who proceeded to add the word "English" to its name), it seems only fitting that the Scots should have their own version of breakfast tea, too, after all. Even stronger than the already potent English Breakfast blend, this particular one is made to match not only the traditionally heavy English but even the Scottish breakfast, which like the English variety includes pork, sausages and eggs, but is amplified by that so distinctly Caledonian culinary creation: haggis (to most of the rest of the world, a classic case of "acquired taste" at best). A blend of primarily Indian teas, Scottish Breakfast contains a particularly high percentage of Assam, which with its malty flavor ideally complements the soft Scottish mountain waters ... as well as Scotland's famous single malt whiskies, the "water of life" ("uisgue beatha") likewise coming from the areas where those same mountain waters are flowing.

Due to its strength, Scottish Breakfast tea maintains its flavor very well with the addition of cream or milk. As an everyday "work horse" and early morning pick-me-up it is easily as good as (if not better than) its more famous sibling from south of the border, or any kind of coffee. Enjoy!
