Tea Education

What makes a particular Assam a cut above the rest? It is a combination of two factors - a deep rich taste and tippy leaf. When a tea bush is plucked, typically the top two leaves and a bud are plucked. When there is an abundance of buds in the mix, it is classified as tippy. Tips in dry leaf are not always the same color. Assam and Yunnan tips are reddish gold whereas in Darjeeling it is green. Tippy Assam teas are usually manufactured mid-season. The early crops usually don't generate the same richness in leaf. Our Khongea Premium is one of our best. Also try Meleng, Sessa or Kaziranga.
