This bold, coppery Assam-style black tea (TGFOP) comes from Bukhial Tea Estate in the state of Assam, where wild elephants still roam the estate! Millenia of loamy river sediments in the soil creates an outstanding terroir, and the limited rainfall of the area slows the growth of the tea bushes and concentrates flavor in the tea leaf.
Bukhial is a tea estate belonging to and managed by George Willamson Assam Ltd – the world’s largest privately held tea plantation group. Bukhial is situated on the south side of the Brahmaputra River in the state of Assam near a remote region called Nagaland. This well-made orthodox leaf tea is rich and malty, with the bright coppery-golden color Assam-aficionados love. For serious tea lovers, or those just looking for an unforgettable cup, this gorgeous whole-leaf tea from Assam’s finest estate is not to be missed.
