More famous for its summer teas, Assam is not quite known for its first flush. However, some tea gardens start production of loose‐leaf teas as well as CTC tea around mid spring. Assam spring teas are mellower than their more famous summer teas, and more smooth and fragrant. The classic Assam notes of malt, honey, nuts are noticeable in most black teas of this season although softer than the summer teas. We source our Assam first flush teas from some of the best estates here. Many of them use clonal bushes to produce both orthodox and CTC teas. Assam’s premier estates all have some standout characteristics. While the Basmatia Tea Estate is renowned for producing tea that is superbly rolled, the Halmari Tea Estate produces CTC teas that are the holy grail for tea drinkers around the world. For strong, distinctive flavours, choose from teas of the Chota Tingrai Tea Estate.

We believe tea is endlessly engaging, brings people together, provides a sense of peace and well-being, and grants of a moment to yourself when you most need it. Great tea touches upon art, defines a sense of culture, marks a ritual, and offers a sense of connoisseurship. But a truly remarkable cup of tea is one which enhances the everyday.
This is the goal we are trying to achieve through our tea store - to bring great tea into the everyday life.
Freshest teas that make a delicious cup
So, what makes our teas great? Well, it’s got a lot to do with freshness. And the reason why freshness matters is because tea is an agricultural product. So, fresher tea tastes better and is healthier. We buy the first pick of every season and take utmost care when it comes to storage and packaging. We work directly with tea growers who know to hand-select tea leaves for their texture, color, scent, and purity. And by sourcing the highest-quality Indian teas directly from the most capable and most interesting growers and estates, Teabox’s online tea shop makes it easy for anyone—from tea experts to complete novices—to experience the freshness, delicate aromas, flavors, and authenticity that fine loose-leaf tea has to offer. We can do this because we’re based in the same foothills and gardens where our teas are grown.
