Assam Supreme TGFOP
Located near the Kaziranga National Park in Assam, portions of the Hathikuli tea estate date back to 1902, when Scottish developers started planting tea in the area. The transformation from conventional to organic growing methods began in 2007 and was completed with a full certification in 2011. The name Hathikuli refers to a place that is frequented by elephants. The teas produced in the region are classic Assamese teas. The Assam Supreme TGFOP is a whole leaf Assam displaying delightful malty notes with rich and warm flavours.
The organic teas we import are artisanally farmed and crafted. They may change with each harvest season. The same tea harvested at a different time of year and processed by a different tea maker will vary slightly in flavour and finish.
|Origin||Hathikulli Estate, Assam, India|
|Tasting Notes||A rich and pleasant black tea with malty notes and traces of sweet honey.|
In the northeastern state of Assam in India, along the Brahmaputra River grow the hearty, malty Assam teas. Assam is home to the Camellia sinensis assamica variety of the tea bush. The heavy rainfall and hot, humid daytime temperatures in this area create the perfect green-house like environment for growth. It is also this unique climate that helps to create the exceptional and distinct flavour found only in Assam teas.
