Handcrafted Teas

Almost all Assam teas are handpicked, mostly by women, and manufactured into black teas in large factories located on thousand acre tea plantations, usually owned by large corporations. These handcrafted teas are not those. These handcrafted teas were grown by indigenous youth on small plots of land, hand harvested, hand rolled, shade fermented and baked in large woks over small stoves for long hours. These artisanal teas offers a deeper, more mature taste of Assam teas.
