Assam Hathikuli FTGFOP1 DE-ÖKO-003, mahe roh.tee, India, 50g
The name “Hathikuli” is composed of the two words, “Hati” which means elephant, and “Kuli” which means often. The “Hathikuli” tea garden is on a territory close to the Kaziranga National Park and is often visited by roaming elephants. The young shoots are carefully plucked by hand from Clonal shrubs and immediately steamed, gently rolled and dried. The organically grown tea is now ready to be brewed and to unfold its noble class. The open, wiry leaf is rather atypical for Assam teas, and has a matt, light green iridescent colour. This is a beautiful, fresh green tea that remains faithful to its Assam character.
