Assam Borengajuli (FBOP) Estate Black Tea

Tea Profile:

Borengajuli Is a  tea estate in the Mangaldai district of Assam (Northeastern India). The bushes of this estate have been selected through natural cloning. This means that the tea bushes that display outstanding characteristics such as: yield, abundance of ‘tip’, flavour, regular and consistent sized leaf were replanted in a tea nursery. Leaf cuttings were then taken from these bushes to grow a ‘mother stock’ of like tea bushes. From the mother stock cuttings were taken which were planted on the estate. The result is a high yielding tea plantation whose produce exhibits exemplary flavour, bright coppery colour in the cup and outstanding leaf style. It is no wonder that Borengajuli  has become one of the most sought after teas from Assam. Borengajuli was one of the first Assam states whose produce was vacuum packed. Tea goes through a natural oxidation process whereby it ages due to its interaction with oxygen. By vacuum packing, this process is arrested until the vacuum is broken. When our tea supplier - Metropolitan Tea Co. in Toronto- re pack Borengajuli here in Canada,  it is out of a vacuum for no more than 30 minutes after which it is re-vacuumed. In essence this tea is literally 2 hours old in terms of freshness. The only place to get fresher tea would be to go to the estate itself. Congratulations on your selection of one of the world's premier teas. The Assam valley is dominated by the Brahmaputra River - a large river which over millennia 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 a relatively dry and cool winter. Perfect conditions for the tea Bush. The area is susceptible to earthquakes which can swallow up whole tea bushes but this does not affect the unmistakable rich taste of Borengajuli FBOP.
