Our Review
Dikom Tea Estate has done this unique tea for the past few years. Natural sweetness in tea comes from the tips (or the buds) because the plants send extra sugars there to make more leaves. This tea is just pure golden tips, so it is lighter and sweeter than most Assams. It is lightly rolled to preserve the tips. This means that there is limited oxidation making for less briskness.
Dry Leaves All golden tips, about 1/2 an inch long. They are coated in a fine, golden downy powder.
Liquor Reddish peach.
Aroma Since it is only the immature tips, the aromas are light and subtle and are of honey & roasted malt.
Caffeine Level Caffeinated
Body This is a light bodied black tea. There are no older leaves to add heft.
Flavors Golden Tips Assam's flavors are caramel-buttery, with slight malt notes, and hints of tropical fruit: papaya and mango. There are none of the darker roasted flavors found in other Assams.
Brewing Time 4 to 5 minutes
Brewing Temperature 212° F

Assam Golden Tips

We order up this tea from the best garden in Assam: Dikom. It is difficult and expensive to make a tea that has golden buds, but it is worth the effort. It is truly a joy to behold and we enjoy its light body and whiffs of honey.

Sooo good
Average Review:

So far, my favorite tea. Very high quality, with a wonderful golden caramel color and malty peppery taste. I usually brew 3-4 cups with the same leaves and love how the taste evolves over each cup. A truly wonderful experience.

Not very flavorful
Average Review:

This tea is a beautiful golden color, but to me had little flavor or aroma. I much prefer the Organic Assam to this tea. Admittedly I'm not an Assam expert, being a daily English Breakfast tea drinker.
