About the Estate/Region
A superb low-grown tea from the district of Morawak Korale. This award-winning tea is velvety and rich with a plum-like finish. A classic Assam with a traditional leaf style. Produced during June this tea embodies all the flavour and strength one expects from a top Assam tea estate. 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. Wild elephants still roam the estate but it could be worse; a century ago headhunters also lurked in the forests! In this area rainfall is lower which makes the bushes grow more slowly producing an outstanding tea. This well-made orthodox leaf tea produces a strong colory and flavorful cup. The manager Mr. Dhar is rightfully proud of the fantastic reputation of this estate.You might ask - What gives Assam tea its special characteristics.
