Located in the Mikir Hills, an extension of the Great Himalayan Range, in Umrangshu in the North Cachar Hills district of Assam, at an elevation of 1800 ft is the Kopili Tea Estate. It is the only garden in Assam that is located at this high altitude, other Assam gardens are at a maximum of 150-200 ft. This estate takes its name from the sacred River which meanders through the hills of Assam and empties into the mighty Brahmaputra River in the plains. Being situated in a sparsely populated area, where soils are rich in mineral content and covered with the lush evergreen rain forests, the Kopili gardens have benefited from the special climatic conditions and the virgin soil. The estate is 2000 acres in size, with over 500 acres in tea cultivation. The blackish tealeaves, with golden tips, brew to a bright copper liquor with a sweet musty smell and a bold malty taste. Brew tea at 212º - steep for 3 minutes.
Like the China Lapsang, the Formosa Lapsang Souchong is an acquired taste. The gray-black, slightly twisted leaves produce a bright orange liquor with a distinctive smoky flavor. This tea is heartier than its China relative. Brew tea at 212º - steep for 3 minutes.
In Chinese, Young Hyson means "before the rains". The tea is prepared from young leaves, twisted in a long, thin style. The flavor is more full-bodied and pungent than other green teas, with a hint of sweetness. Brew tea at 180º - steep for 2 minutes.
Fabulous hot or iced (so yes you can enjoy it in the summer too!) and with no added sugar, this calorie free blend is sure to please. The aroma of the dry leaf is amazing - a definite mood booster - with its euphoric aroma of minty sweetness. When brewed, this herbal blend has a taste that is tingly, refreshing, and harkens us back to our childhood. The taste lingers delicately and deliciously on the tongue. A cup of this tea brings joy to our day and we hope it does the same for you!
