About the Estate/Region
The Teamaker at the Hatidubi Tea Factory from the Golaghat District surprised us with one felicitous experiment: Probably the first in Assam to produce smoked tea! Fu Soonga is a very popular Assamese way of cooking this young green bamboo, tubes are filled with food or yogurt and cooked over an open fire or on hot plates. Fu means blow and Soonga means pipe.The idea was to blow smoke from the wild woods well over these bamboo pipes during production. The result can be tasted: a soft aromatic Assam tea with a slight smokiness.
