Assam

Origin

Where your tea comes from

Golden-green rice fields, thick forests, manicured tea estates surrounded by blue hills, green valleys, and a red river, Assam is the largest Northeastern state in India. Situated just below the eastern Himalayan foothills, it stretches along the Brahmaputra River. Our Assam Golden Buds originates from one of the finest tea gardens in Assam. It is located in the Sivasagar district and has prized assamica variety hybrids. The garden has been extremely well-laid out to produce teas of exceptional quality.

Chaiwala Rhino

Hunted for its horn, the one horned rhinos were almost extinct, with less than 200 left by the end of the 19th century. Conservation efforts have revived their population and brought their worldwide numbers to around 3,000 now — the bulk of them in Kaziranga, Assam.
