From the Khongea Tea Estate located in upper reaches of the Assam region of India. The estate is located on the south bank of the Brahmaputra River. The Khongea Tea Estate is the single largest tea growing region in the world, producing breakfast teas that go well with milk, and are prized for their rich, malty, and robust cup character. The finest Assam teas produced during Second Flush have chunky golden tips. The first harvest of the year starts in March, after a prolonged period of winter dormancy. The First Flush in Assam often has a fragrant, fresh, flowery character, usually a little spicier than its Darjeeling equivalent. The cup is golden yellow in color. However, the best quality Assam teas are harvested in May and June, during the Second Flush period. Khongea Second Flush teas have an unusually high proportion of chunky golden tips. The teas have a spicy and malty character and the color of the infused leaves is a rich coppery red to deep brown. Khongea produces both orthodox and CTC and orthodox tea leaf.
