Tarajulie Assam Estate Black Tea

Grade FBOP (Flowery Broken Orange Pekoe) A tippy tea (containing tips of the leaf) 2nd flush that is full bodied with a round smoothness. A wonderful all day tea.

Tarajulie is a beautiful estate that lies in the shadows of the Himalayan mountains on the Bramaputra River plain. On a clear day the majestic mountains are visible on the northern horizon. The estate was purchased by the George Williamson Group of companies in the mid 1980 s and they have maintained the high standards that this estate was known for. The estate produces only orthodox manufactured tea. From time to time on the estate they contend with wild elephants and the occasional tiger. A few years ago, intrusions by wild animals were not welcomed. Today however, these visits are not seen in the same light. In fact Tarajulie has maintained some of the forested areas on the estate to provide cover for these endangered animals.

What gives Assam tea its special characteristics? The Assam valley is dominated by the Brahmaputra River - a large slowly meandering river which over a millennium of spring and fall flooding has deposited a rich loam over the valley. The soil is deep and sandy and the region suffers a very hot and steamy monsoon season, but equally important is 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 Tarajulie FBOP.
