    KNOW YOUR TEA

    Situated in Karbi Anglong, the Banaspaty tea garden is one of the first certified organic tea gardens of Assam. Meaning flora, fauna, and trees, Banaspaty is awarded for being the first 'Elephant Friendly Tea Garden' in Assam. This lush green tea garden also spots Rhinos as it is near Kaziranga National Park. Famed for producing top-notch quality teas, the rich alluvial soil of the Brahmaputra valley gives their tea a unique character. We have sampled this gorgeous Indian single malt, the golden tippy orthodox tea. Full-bodied, brisk with exquisite notes of malt arrives right from the start. Hints of yellow raisins encircle around the middle with notes of stone fruits coming in the aftertaste. An immersive experience of Indian Summer Harvest 2021!

    A full-bodied, robust Assam cup which beams with delectable notes of malt right from the start. Malty tones reverberate throughout the length and define the central theme for this liquor. Subtle sweet flavors, akin to dates joined with mellow accents of yellow raisins shore up towards the middle and around the edges; rendering more depth and well-rounded feel to the cup. Luscious tones of stone-fruits brightens up the palate in the aftertaste, making for an exquisite cup of Summer Assam from this Organic tea estate.
