origin: india

ingredients: black tea leaves

caffeine: strong

price level: $$$$

A lovely dark Assam tea with smooth, soft mouthfeel. Golden Tips Assam is perfect for blending with milk and sugar, as an uplifting plain sipping tea, or even as an iced tea in the summer. Golden Tips Assam is made from a distinct Camellia assamica plant varietal growing only at a handful of estates. The leaves are withered, bruised with a rolling machine, oxidized, and then oven roasted. In making the Golden Tips, the oxidization is slightly longer than in making darker Assams. The Golden Tips are precious for the tea gardens as they fetch a higher premium in the market. The high volume of essential oils in the Golden Tips Assam is evident immediately after the tea is served, as a thin layer of oil quickly coats the surface of the tea.
