Description

The Behora tea estate was founded in 1908 and is located in the Dhunseri District of Assam. The Smith / Stammers family were involved with the Behora Estate for over 30 years ( read the story below ). This production is a Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe grade tea and is of extremely good quality a well manufactured leaf picked in the month of June. The liquor is bright and coppery in colour with a fine traditional Assamese malty taste notes.

Assam Behora TGFOP Estate Tea

The Story. . . . . . . . . . . . . Mr Robert Stammers was based on the estate for 35 years ultimately becoming the manager. He is father of Mrs Janet Smith and Grandfather to Richard Smith who today run the Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company. Robert Stammers oversaw the development of the estate which became one of Assam's top tea estates known for its quality tea production. Mr and Mrs Stammers retired back to the UK in 1960 (the second product picture shows them and the Behora staff at a farewell gathering). This left the younger generations to continue in the tea business in India and ultimately in the village of Pluckley in Kent. We are very happy and proud to be able to sell Behora Estate Tea!

    Really refreshing tea with a very delicate taste. Assam is my favourite tea, so I would really look forward to seeing an Assam which is the first pickings in April, with a slightly more floral taste, but despite that. this is still a very delicious tea. Was really impressed by the look of the tea.

    A great tippy leaf Assam that does brew up well but needs time. Best enjoyed without milk despite the strength. Plenty of character that is typical of an Assam tea. Packs a punch first thing in the morning!

    Steep for five minutes, add a little milk, and this is a wonderful breakfast tea that is strong and malty. Definitely a great everyday tea.
