The Suffry Tea Estate in Sibsagar District in Assam is one of a few gardens owned by the Apeejay Surrendra Group, one of India’s oldest business conglomerates. Still family owned having started in 1910. In 2005 Premier Foods PLC sold Typhoo Tea to Apeejay where it is now a subsidiary. In 1863, William Sumner published ‘A Popular Treatise on Tea’ and in 1870 founded a pharmacy grocery business with his son John. The third-generation son, John Jr. in 1903 created a new tea for their shop, following advice from his sister on the calming effects of tea. The name Typhoo comes from the Chinese word for ‘doctor’. I’m sure that the Sumner’s would thoroughly approve of this Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe Tea.
