Brisk, bold, and pure, we grew this organic Assam black tea on our family tea estate, Chota Tingrai (27.458869 N, 95.354856 E). This tea bag is excellent for waking you in the morning or replacing your afternoon cup of coffee.
In the tea bag, you find no fillers or dust. Instead you meet a blend of tiny, uniform spheres, and long, sometimes aureate, leaves. The balls are CTC, seldom found outside India. Do not be deceived by their size. These little balls brew tea as strong as an elephant. The leaves you see are the fabled golden tips of Assam. Prized for their complexity of scent and flavor, you will rarely find these tips in tea bags.
When you brew a bag, you can watch the golden tips unfurl and the little spheres grow plump. Upon brewing, you smell dates, almonds, and parsley as the liquor blooms a dark rosy red. As you take your first sip of the tea, you meet a flawlessly smooth balance of malt and sweet. While you can add milk and sugar, the honey after-taste will try to dissuade you. As you savour each drop, you can taste the rich, healthy earth of Assam and the warm, happy pride of the women who plucked the leaf.
We nurture every plant with 100% organic compost made on our estate. We pluck and process every batch of leaf to meet the highest health and safety standards. The bag represents the state of the art in tea bagging- shaped for perfect brewing and made from biodegradable, corn starch. We love this tea, the land we grew it on, and the people with whom we grew it. We know you will love it too.
In the Global Tea Championship 2017, Chota Tingrai Tea Estate placed in the top of the Assam Tea category, featuring the TGFOP1 included in our Organic Assam Tea Bags.
