Prized for its full-bodied smoothness & sweet, malty taste, Banaspathy's 2nd Flush has beautiful unbroken leaves with lots of buds & golden tips. Try a 3 minute steep to experience the layered honeyed flavors; a longer steep for a darker cup which works well with milk or as is. Seasonal Availability ~ second harvest takes place during late spring.
Indian Black Tea (Organic)
1. Fill kettle with fresh water, then heat.
2. Warm your teapot with a little hot water, discard, place your tea leaves in teapot, allowing heat of the pot to release bouquet of the tea leaves.
3. Heat water to rolling boil (212°). Steep 1 teaspoon (2.5 g/8 oz. cup) up to 5 minutes.
*Vary time according to taste, & remember that steeping tea leaves beyond 5 mins does not contribute to flavor, only bitterness.
