The tea is vacuum-packed at the estate capturing the pungent 2nd flush flavour at its peak. A fabulous tea! Deep in the jungles that grow along the banks of the Brahmaputra within clear eyeshot of the Himalayas lies the fabled Borengajuli Estate. Borengajuli has long been the talk of the Assam tea trade and not just because of its picture perfect surroundings, exceptional air and stunning colonial era bungalows (although these certainly don't hurt its reputation). Rather Borengajuli made its name via the outstanding tea it produces as the result of a painstaking "natural cloning"process. Some time ago the nuance and malted character of the resulting teas were considered so fine that Borengajuli was chosen to participate in the pilot project to vacuum pack teas at the Estate level. Ask any of the planters at any of the clubs from Guwahati to Pertabghur and they'll tell you the same thing: Borengajuli's teas are almost perfect. It wasn't always so. Many years ago plucky Estate managers began selecting the finest plants the gardens had to offer. They looked for bushes with higher yields, an abundance of "tip", superb flavour and better resistance to drought and pests. These bushes were placed in a special nursery and over time cuttings were made that were nurtured and replanted in the gardens. Gradually as more and more cuttings grew into full bushes the estate filled with these "perfect" tea bushes. As a result Borengajuli is one of the highest yielding estates in terms of exceptional luxury grade teas. (Note: genetic modification is not a part of the natural cloning process. This tea is not genetically modified)

I’ve tried to like this

Assam is my preferred tea and I have been drinking Belseri from another supplier but this is no longer available so I went looking for a malty alternative. In the week since it arrived I’ve tried different quantities of tea, different infusion times from 3 mins to 5 and different water temperatures from boiling to just off the boil but I have to say none of them has hit the mark for me. A smaller quantity of tea, water off the boil and brewed for 3 mins works best but it doesn’t make a strong malty cup, there's no brightness and I don’t find it refreshing. There is also another peculiar taste to the tea which I haven’t encountered in Assam before. So, in all, it’s back to the search for me.

Good standard Assam

One of the more subtle Assams here

Getting it right

A delightful cup of tea provided the brew temperature and time are right not to mention the correct amount of tea per cup
