A tea tasting session was organized by Young Indians, Guwahati chapter, in association with Apeejay Tea Limited in Guwahati on Sunday.
The tea tasting session was organised by Razi Khan, director- sales & marketing- of Apeejay Tea Ltd.
He spoke in details about the history of tea in Assam and shared his expertise with the tea enthusiasts who were present in the event.
“Nothing can replace Assam tea as it has an inherent quality which comes from the soil,” Khan said.
“The Brahmaputra adds unmeasurable value to the soil contributing greatly to the briskness and bright yellow colour to your cup of tea,” he added.
“The Assam second flush orthodox, mellow and intensely flavourful often referred to as tippy tea whilst the CTC is malty, brisk and full-bodied, high on anti-oxidants, is one of the best tea in the world,” Khan added.
During the tea testing session, 30 varieties from the best gardens of Assam were presented for the tea enthusiasts.
A wide range of herbal tea from Typhoo, India’s premium brand was also presented in the tea and wellness category.
The session was not only engaging but informative too and was thoroughly enjoyed by the participants.
The star of the show was the Valentine tea, which is a special blend created by the master blender Razi Khan.
