The Hathikuli Tea Estate cultivates noticeably pretty teas on one of the largest certified organic cultivation areas in the Assam Valley south of the River Bramaputhra.

Assam Hunwal Tea
Hunwal’s reputation for producing Orthodox teas is as rich as its heritage. We are fortunate to have a continued and secure supply of top seasonal FBOP and GBOP varieties. What’s the difference between the two? FBOP, (Flowery Broken Orange pekoe) is a tippier version of GBOP (Golden Broken Orange Pekoe) and therefore slightly milder in the cup. The tea produces a delicately astringent liquor with flavorful layers of malt. These characteristics make Hunwal FBOP excellent on its own or with a dash of milk.
Assam Mokalbari Tea
A classical Assam from the second plucking period from one of the top plantations of the region. For almost 100 years now, excellent teas have been produced here, just like our quality with its wiry, colourful leaf and the strong and spicy flavour with a rich, malty character. A real delicacy, either drunk pure or with Kluntje (rock sugar) and cream, like in Eastern Frisia. Should definitely form part of any upscale tea assortment.
