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.

DOOMNI Golden Tips is probably the best that I have hitherto seen from Assam.

Average Review:

This is arguably my all-time favorite tea. Not a single person I've served it to has drank this tea without making some type of praising comment. It's malty, slightly sweet, and has a slightly creamy mouthfeel, which I adore. It brews a bit lighter than most Assams. There is something very special about this tea that makes me feel like I'm in an Indian tea garden. Too bad it's out of stock... I want more!
