Tea giant Goodricke Group launched four exclusive brands of Assam Single Estate Tea at the Guwahati Tea Auction Centre Tea Lounge on Friday, commemorating 200 years of the Assam tea industry. The range comprises select teas from four of Goodricke Group's tea estates, namely Dejoo, Harmutty, Amgoorie, and Borbam TE located in the Brahmaputra Valley. The Assam single estate range includes both CTC and Orthodox teas, crafted with the finest handpicked leaves and named after their tea gardens. The four varieties offer malty and musky notes and are the preferred choice for tea sommeliers for their rich texture, smoothness, and full-bodied liquor.
