  • The Halmari Estate is found on the northern bank of the River Brahmaputra in the district of Dibrugarh in Upper Assam.

  • They also hold the record for the most expensive tea sold in 2015 at the Kolkata auctions.
  • They also took gold in the North American Tea Championships in 2016.

  • .The tea itself
  • The tea itself comprises striking looking, rough, small leaves with many golden tips. It produces a dark infusion with a wonderful fresh bread smell and a spicy and malty taste.
  • I made this tea with boiling water and steeped for four minutes, go more or less depending on how you like your strength.
  • You will receive 85 grams of this tea for £5.00. This will make between 42 cups and 84 cups of tea using two grams per cup. This works out at between twelve pence and six pence per cup.
  • At Gently Stirred every order is gift wrapped so if you're buying for a number of different people just add that information at checkout.
