Peter's Pick
Khongea Assam Gold Tips Black Tea Assam teas for the most part are good teas with a few estates making exceptional teas. Such is the case with the Khongea Estate owned by Glenburn Teas in India. We carried this tea for a good number of years back 3 years ago and have just now brought it back again. Many of our Assam customers have missed this delightful tea and remarked about it’s numerous gold tips. Khongea is a classic mid-summer Assam tea, a robust black tea with tons of body and weight. Khongea Assam exhibits that traditional slightly sweet malty note typical of quality Assam black teas. It is famous for, and a has a lovely, long, lingering finish. When steeping this tea, I do not recommend making it too strong, especially on the first cup. Too strong a cup will most likely turn you off this tea and most other black teas for that matter. Use 2 -3 grams per 8 ounce cup, bring water short of the boil, 195 – 200F. and steep for 3 minutes. Please stay with your cup and make certain it is steeped properly. Way too many cups of tea are ruined by over-steeping and not paying careful attention to the steeping parameters. ENJOY!
