Assam 2nd Flush Tonganagaon Superior is a Loose Leaf Black Tea from the Assam Tea Estate of the same name. The fact that it is a second flush ensures it is of the highest calibre.
Also noteworthy is that it has been harvested and produced using only organic methods. When brewed, it boasts a strong and malty taste with subtle sweet notes. We pack it fresh to order here at our Kent-based factory.
Tonganagaon Tea Estate in Assam, India
This popular northeast Indian Tea garden, located near the Himalayan foothills and the mighty Brahmaputra river, was established in 1927. It has been under the ownership of the Chamong group of the Lohia family since 2008.
Since then, Mr Ashok Lohia has taken it upon himself to transform the property from its formerly neglected and desolate state to a thriving hub for Tea-growing.
One of the most commendable new features introduced in recent years is organic production. Furthermore, most old Tea bushes have been replaced with new plants; 538 hectares of land is currently under Tea cultivation.
A modern factory has likewise been constructed to ensure it meets the high requirements of international buyers. Tonganagaon continues to grow and build on its reputation.
Does Assam 2nd Flush Tonganagaon Superior Have Caffeine?
Black, Green, White and Oolong all come from the same place - the Camellia sinensis plant. The difference between each type is the processing of the leaves.
This particular infusion has undergone the highest amount of oxidation and, therefore, contains the most caffeine. You can expect around 45-mg of the stimulant per 8-oz cup, which should be more than enough to start your day the right way.

Benefits of Assam Tonganagaon Tea
This Loose Leaf Tea is teeming with antioxidants, a natural form of defence for the body that exists in a multitude of nutritional foods and drinks.
Their primary duty is to combat free radicals in the body, which, in turn, are unpaired and unstable elections introduced through the natural, though often harmful, process of oxidation. It is a battleground of sorts, one that Assam 2nd Flush Tonganagaon Superior can help win.
When antioxidants neutralise free radicals, it slows oxidative stress. Doing so ultimately reduces the risk of developing several chronic conditions, from cardiovascular disease to type-2 diabetes to even, potentially, certain types of cancer.
That’s not all. Antioxidants also improve skin health, ward off minor illnesses such as colds and the flu, and even promote weight loss.
