Jungle Fire Assam Black Tea

$0.36 Per Cup

50 Grams  (1.76 Ounces) / 20 First Steeps

Origin: Sonitpur in Assam, India

Farm Name: Kanoka Tea

Farmer: Pallabjyoti Nath

Cultivation Method: All Natural

This Orthodox (whole leaf) Assam tea is a lot different from your typical Assam.  The tea leaves are hand-picked and hand-processed.  This results in a bold, flavorful, and complex tea.  It tastes malty and woody with hints of honey.  The brewed tea has a nice sunset orange color and it smells of a subtle campfire.

The Kanoka Tea Estate was founded in 2009 so it is relatively new to the tea industry.  It sits on eight acres in Sonitpur, Assam and it is owned by the Nath Family.  They are dedicated to natural practices and producing the highest quality tea that they are able to produce.  They have the unique distinction in being able to say that chemicals or synthetic materials have never touched their land!  Most of the organic and natural farms in Assam were converted from conventional farms to natural ones, but not this one.

Steeping and Storage

Use 2.5 grams (2 teaspoons) of loose leaf tea per 6 ounces of water.  Steep with water ranging from 195 to 205 degrees for 3 to 5 minutes.  Can be re-steeped up to 5 times.  If making iced tea, double the amount of tea leaves used and keep the time the same; sweeten while steeping and when done steeping pour over ice.

Keep in mind that these steeping instructions are merely a suggested starting point.  Everyone has different tastes and preferences and you can adjust the amount of tea used and the steep time accordingly.  If you would like your tea to have a stronger taste, add more tea leaves.  Conversely, if it is too strong, use less tea leaves.  It is quite fun to play with the temperature of the water and the steep times to bring out different tastes and textures in the tea!

Loose leaf tea should be stored in a cool, dark, and dry environment away from strong odors that the tea will most certainly absorb (do not store in the refrigerator or spice cabinet).  It is best to store it in an air tight container as this will reduce the amount of oxygen that interacts with the tea and thus preserving its life.
