About this tea

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.

TGFOP translates to Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe. Teas from Khongea tea estate are always rich in flavor, deeper, and malted.

What a lovely Assam! It has a rich, delicious taste with a nice malty character. I steeped it according to package directions, which suggested a 4 – 5 minute steep time, and next time I think I am going to reduce that to 3 minutes. While this is good, I do detect a bit of bitterness to it that may be reduced when steeped for less time.

After adding some milk to the cup, the bitterness goes away, and I have a delicious, creamy cuppa! YUM YUM YUM!
