About the Estate/Region
Only produced in March and April when the mountain air is moist and cool. One of the oldest tea gardens in Assam was planted in 1870 by Major Gibb the garden's name has been derived from Queen Hiramati wife of King Arimatta whose kingdom is thought to have been all of lower Assam. The remnants of the queen's burial ground are still present next to the Maj (middle) Bungalow.The picturesque location of this garden with the fast flowing Dikrong River alongside and the Northern boundaries extending into the thickly forested hills of Arunachal Pradesh give the visitor a breathtaking and an unforgettable view. With the abundance of untouched forests in and around the garden and the gentle wild animals paying a regular visit makes working in this garden a unique experience.The fertile soil is most conducive to the growing of Tea and the handpicked clones that have been planted over the years have thrived at Harmutty to offer the connoisseur a range of teas unmatched for both their flavour and freshness.
