description

Khobong makes this summer specialty with its extraordinary flavor profile made from Raspberry Jam clones exclusive to the estate. The delicious notes of raspberry are rare and cannot be found in any other Assam. The bright liquor is fragrant and the pre-eminent flavor of raspberry is charmingly coupled with the robustness of malt. The subtle sweetness interplays delightfully with the tartness lending the cup a certain level of intricacy. A truly unique tea experience to indulge in.

Lifted note of raspberry jam with undercurrent of malt, dried drupes and soft peachy nuances

Dark red
taste:
The liquor is medium-bodied, robust, fragrant and bright-tasting. Delicious notes of raspberry jam greet the palate and resonate throughout the length of the cup. Coupled with robust notes of malt which comes through towards the middle, a gentle sweetness interlaced with delicate tartness coats the palate. A furtive grapey note along with gummy candy flavor is evident towards the end rounding up the cup beautifully. The fruity notes linger on in the aftertaste adding to the experience.
COMPLEMENTS:
Best enjoyed on its own or ideal with soft cheeses, like the Camembert and a salad course.
