Improving the tea industry in Assam

Assam became the epicenter of the colonial tea plantation system in the 1800s. Today, Assam's tea plantations are still fraught with labor injustices and many plantation laborers live and work in terrible conditions. Our longtime partners at Tea Promoters of India (TPI) have been dedicated to reforming the tea industry in several regions including Assam. In a relatively short time, TPI has helped the large Banaspaty tea garden become the first organic certified and “Elephant Friendly” tea garden in all of Assam. TPI has also facilitated the start of the Karbi Anglong Small Farmer tea project in the surrounding community. Bogamati was the first small farmer to be part of this new small farmer organization. We’re proud to support their ongoing work to improve the industry in Assam.

Brewing

Bring water to a boil (212ºF/100ºC) and steep 2-3g of tea for 4-5 minutes.
