Assam Khongea TGFOP 2nd flush
Rich and malty. An excellent everyday Assam
Although established in the late nineteenth century by two English tea planting ladies, Khongea has been managed and owned by the Prakash family for over 50 years. Under the guidance of Sudhir Prakash, the Chairman of the company for the last 30 years.
Khongea teas are exported to niche markets such as EU and the USA, where the golden tippy teas produced during Second Flush are especially appreciated. Khongea is situated in the upper reaches of Assam, on the south bank of the Brahmaputra River. It is the single largest tea growing region in the world. It produces good 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 colour. 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 CTC and Orthodox (leaf tea).
