Where are the fresh Assam teas from.

We have brought two leaf Assam teas from August season. One from Nonaipara, that neighbours with Bhutan, and the other one from Koilamari Tea Estate. Assam teas are produced in two typical ways: orthodox and ctc. Orthodox method is for producing leaf teas and ctc means crushing – tearing – curling, where small dark balls come up and you can make a pretty strong tea by using them. We mainly use Assam CTC as an ingredience to Masala Chai. Leaf Assams are excellent to drink just like that, but we do not keep anybody from adding milk and honey. As in India 🙂


Assam Tea Map


Nonaipara Tea Estate

The first planting was done in 1928 by Mr S. Adamson who served at Nonaipara till 1935. This property of the then M/s Assam and Dooars Tea Company was handed over to the Goodricke Group Limited in 1977 from where it currently operates.
This beautifully located property borders the Nonai river on the East and the majestic Bhutan hills from the Northern boundary. Expertise in field and factory have ensured that this garden ranks amongst the top quality marks of Assam.
The tea has a lighter, citrus flavor, resembling of Darjeeling teas.

Enjoys excellent climatic conditions on the north bank of the Brahmaputra River.
This estate consists of two sections: Koilamari and Joyhing Divisions,
It´s proximity to the neighboring Arunachal Pradesh Forest assures premium quality of leaf.
