Assam Tonganagaon Estate FTGFOP1 - 2 oz
This small plantation in North Eastern Assam is located next to Namdapha one of India's most biodiverse regions. In tumultuous years past, the land was held by rebels, but after much effort and rehabilitation, has given way to fields of happy, organic Assamica tea bushes and several peaceful villages supported by the industry. Tongana means "axe", and gaon "village", named after the axe-wielding Hindu god Parashurama.
The high grade leaf is delicate and fine with plentiful golden tips presents aroma of strawberry jam and sweet tobacco. The soup is copper in color, smooth, rich and brisk, with loads of malt, burnt caramel, chocolate, hazelnut, and spice notes. great with milk or on its own. A real gem! Brew AT 200F.
