About the Estate/Region
Memories of childhood sweet and bright with an exotic anise finish. Hunwal is regarded as one of the top Assam tea estates. The superb growing conditions make this GBOP coppery bright with astringency. Throughout India spirituality is given great prominence in day-to-day life. Priests and monks can be found everywhere the ubiquitous cows sacred to Hinduism are found throughout the country and religious blessings are bestowed on everything from new homes to new businesses. In the tea fields of Assam it is no different. One of the more interesting examples of this is the ceremony known aspuja the blessing of new tea plants.Whenever a new plot of tea is planted prayer offerings are given in reverence to Brahma the Hindu god of creation and namesake of the Brahmaputra River that bisects the province. (Brahmaputra literally meansson of Brahma.)The river is highly regarded by the Assamese and is responsible for the perfect climactic and soil conditions for growing tea.
