The Namdang Tea Estate
This garden, comprising 753 hectares, is in the Tinsukia District of the Indian State of Assam. It belongs to the Mcleod Russel Plantations Group, a company known for nurturing estates while expanding their capabilities.
Margherita, a sister estate also owned by Mcleod Russel, finds itself nearby. (We stock an Assam Tea Margherita GFBOP Tea if you’d like to compare the two).
Recent harvests at Namdang have resulted in some 2,000 tonnes of Loose Tea produced annually. The estate, therefore, is a relatively big player in the local industry - and has been since its founding in 1884.
