Region: Assam
Country: India

 

This tea is handcrafted on Latumoni Estate in Assam, India. It is an experimental 'oolong style' tea, using Assam grown leaves that are then processed more like a traditional oolong. It was hand picked on the 18th April 2020 (Assam's spring season) from Assamica seed plants. The plants are grown at an elevation of 120m above sea level. We purchased 5kg from the total batch of 20kg.

This tea certainly holds its own against traditional Chinese oolongs in terms of flavour - which is particularly surprising for a style of tea which has almost no history of being produced in India. Its processing involves being hand picked, oxidation, shaking and finally pan frying. This final step ensures that the leaves cease their enzyme reaction to lock the flavours and stop the oxidation.

Latumoni Estate was planted by the late Mr Ramesh and his son Mr Sailen in the early 90's, just as tea plantation rules in India were becoming more liberal. Small holders were now allowed to grow their own tea plants to sell to the large, established factories throughout the region. Measuring roughly 2 acres in size, all of the teas produced on the estate are processed entirely by hand. Today, Mr Sailen uses natural and sustainable farming techniques, which means that this tea is classified as non-certified organic.

This tea should be drank over multiple infusions - and without milk or sugar to truly appreciate it.
