A mellow and malty Assam with a bright and golden cup. Velvety and full of malty notes.
Bukhial is situated on the south side of the Brahmaputra River in the state of Assam near a remote region called Nagaland where wild elephants still roam. The area has lower rainfall and the tea bushes grow slower producing outstanding tea.
Grown on the rolling plains by the Brahmaputra river that weaves its way through valleys and hills, Assam is famous for its smooth malty flavour. A taste crafted by the region’s rich loamy soil, unique climate, and liberal rainfall. Assam is not just the largest contiguous tea-growing area in the world. It is also a refuge for endangered species like the One-horned Rhino, Red-headed Vulture, and the Hoolock Gibbon and of course, mind-boggling diversity.
