The Assam region of India produces bold tasting and burgundy hued teas that are rich, mellow, and smooth. The Halmari Estate, an Indian Assam Tea Estate in the Dibrugarh district of India, produces notably tippy and malty teas. These are excellent teas for those that love breakfast teas - strong malty black teas that work well on their own or with milk and sugar.
Tippy is a tea term used when describing an unopened bud (Pekoe tip) exists in the tea. The tawny golden tippy quality of this tea promises a sweetened and smooth flavor.
