Grown on the south side of the Brahmaputra River near the remote region of Nagaland, Bukhial TGFOP Assam is a premium tea with a traditional leaf style. As rainfall is lower in this area, the bushes grow more slowly yielding outstanding crops that have all the flavour and strength you would expect from a top Assam tea estate.

Bukhial is a tea estate belonging to and managed by George Willamson Assam Ltd - the world's largest privately held tea plantation group. Bukhial is situated on the south side of the Brahmaputra River in the state of Assam near a remote region called Nagaland. Wild elephants still roam the estate, but it could be worse; a century ago headhunters also lurked in the forests! In this area rainfall is lower which makes the bushes grow more slowly, producing an outstanding tea. This well-made orthodox leaf tea produces a strong, colory and flavorful cup. The manager Mr. Dhar is rightfully proud of the fantastic reputation of this estate.

You might ask - What gives Assam tea its special characteristics? The Assam valley is dominated by the Brahmaputra River - a large slowly meandering river which over millennia of fall flooding has deposited a rich loam over the valley. The soil is a deep and sandy and the region suffers a very hot and steamy monsoon season, but equally important a relatively dry and cool winter. Perfect conditions for the Assam tea bush. This area is also susceptible to earthquakes which can make the ground swallow up whole tea bushes but this does not affect the unmistakable rich taste of Bukhial TGFOP.

Ingredients: Premium BLACK Leaf Tea
