Khongea Tippy Golden Assam
With citrus, oaky, clove, cinnamon, and raw cacao notes, Khongea Golden Tippy Assam is a smooth, rich, and malty tea with a pleasant astringency that lingers. This Assam is stronger than our Premium Taiwanese Assam and originates from the Khongea Estate in the Brahmputra river valley of the Assam region in India. This second flush tea utilizes the P126 Clonal plants that produce a large portion of golden tips and is graded TGFOP (Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe). The Khongea Estate is a member of the Ethical Tea Partnership, which focuses on sustainability and living and working conditions of those working at the tea estate. We recommend experimenting with the 4 and 5 minute brew time range for this tea. At 4 minutes the brew is less astringent yet still flavorful, however, this tea is more complex at the 5 minute range. While supplies last, we will be offering 1 free ounce of Khongea’s Assam Leaf (strong & malty Assam) with every 1 ounce purchase of our Khongea Golden Tippy Assam. Limit 3 ounces of free tea per order.
