Assam Khongea Estate Loose Leaf Black Tea with Bamboo Infuser
ABOUT The Assam region is situated in northeast India. It is very fertile and produces almost half of all Indian teas. The overwhelming majority of teas produced today in Assam are CTCs (method created to fill the need of teabag packers). A few plantations still offer teas made by orthodox methods. This tea has large elegant leaves with golden tips, and it is an orthodox rolled black tea. Golden tips, or buds on the leaves, increase the sweetness of the tea. Larger-leaf teas are generally rarer and twice as expensive to produce. Assam tea comes from Camellia sinensis var. assamica which is a different form of its Chinese tea plant.
TASTE TGFOP translates to Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe. Teas from Khongea tea estate are always rich in flavor, deeper, and malted. Some people prefer certain teas for certain times, but Assam is a tea I could drink all day.
