The Exclusive Assam Tea
The quality of Assam tea is the finest. Assam has a first flush and a second flush tea. On one side the first flush boasts of a rich and refreshing aroma and on the other hand, the second flush produces the popular 'Tippy Teas' (Tippy refers to black tea along with gold tips or that appears to be golden-coloured leaf). The quantity of tip varies depending on the area and location of the tea estate from which the tea comes from. The golden tip present in Assam tea tends to reduce the bitter characteristic of the tea which also makes it sweet and smooth. Therefore, the quality of Assam tea can be enjoyed by all tea drinkers.
The state of Assam is a full bodied tea along with good malty flavour. Dominated by the Brahmaputra River, Assam valley has a deep and sandy soil and a relatively dry and cool winter which is an advantage for tea plantation. The production of black tea can be divided into two categories- Orthodox and CTC (Crush, Tear and Curl).
