Tara Julie Assam (FBOP)
A thick full bodied tea with good malty 2nd flush flavor. An excellent self-drinker.
Tarajulie is a beautiful estate that lies in the shadows of the Himalayan Mountians on the Brahmaputra River plain. Some of the forested areas on the estate are maintained to provide cover for endangered animals, so at times wild elephants and the occasional tiger may be seen. The Assam valley is dominated by the Brahmaputra River – a large slowly meandering river which over millenia of spring and fall flooding has deposited a rich loam over the valley. The soil is deep abd sandy. The region suffers a very hot and steamy monsoon season, but equally important a relatively dry and cool winter. Perfect conditions for the Assam tea bush.
