From Joy's Teaspoon

Harvested from the Khongea tea estate in India, this Assam boasts more golden tips than the average tea. Malty and spicy with a traditional golden cup color, this is excellent in the morning and takes cream and sugar well.

Khongea Estate is 490 hectares, 300 feet above sea level and experiences 150-200 inches of rainfall per year. A few more stats: 1200+ workers, 700+ residential families, 3 villages, 2 schools and 1 hospital. Khongea has been owned and operated by the Prakash family for over 50 years and is overseen by G.N. Singh.

I actually drank this and wrote a note a while ago, but I can’t find the note, so I’m thinking Steepster ate it during one of its tantrums. So let’s try again.

I don’t remember what I used last time, but this time I did 1teaspoon, 8 oz water, 200F, 2 minutes. Sweetened.

Unlike some teas that develop most of it’s flavor in the middle to end of the sip, this tea seems to lay all it’s card on the table, so to speak. Front of the sip presents malt, a dark fruity note, cherry, maybe craisins, and some dark honey like flavors. The mid to end of the sip is a dark bread like taste. A very smooth tea.

As it cools, the flavors seem to spread out a bit, still the same notes, but spread out throughout the sip. I liked this steep a little but better than the first time, so 2 minutes seems to be my sweet spot.
