This tea is grown on Tarajulie Estate, established in 1884. Tarajulie is an exceptionally picturesque estate, nestled between the Gabharu River to the West and the Dipota River to the East. The Estate spreads out over approximately 699 hectares divided by two divisions, Tara and Julie. The divisions get their names from two 6 hectare lakes contained within their boundaries. Of Tarajulie’s total land area, 503 hectares are under tea with production divided between CTC (Cut Tear & Curl) and Orthodox teas. Living on the Estate is a workforce of approximately 1065 people and their families. Tarajulie FBOP (Flowery Broken Orange Pekoe) 2nd flush offers a yellowish bright liquor with an fabulously robust cup and deep malt character - an exceptional tea. This tea is a classic top quality Assam, very full bodied and tending ‘juicy’. Quite often milk is used to tone down the strength of the tea since milk gives the tea a smoothness that is very pleasant and highlights the malty notes.
