    Planted in the late 1880s, Khobong is located in Tinsukia, Assam, and houses one of the largest tea processing plants in the North East of India. A lush green ancient estate, well-known worldwide for producing unique raspberry teas, is believed to be indigenously grown by the natives here. We have sourced these immensely aromatic teas fresh from Khobong. Medium-bodied, robust and bright, with a unique note of raspberry jam and dried drupes, experience a distinctive cup of Indian Summer Harvest 2021.

    taste

    A medium-bodied, bright-tasting cup which opens with a distinct note of raspberry jam and resonates throughout to define the central theme of the liquor. Muted malty accents are discernible towards the middle which gradually ebb to reveal luscious tones of dried drupes towards the finish, adding variety and pleasing texture to the cup. The finale is defined by furtive notes of gummy candies which round up the cup beautifully and linger on, making for a distinctive summer experience of Assam orthodox black teas this season.
