There’s more to Assam teas than you might think. Join Manoj Jalan, Director of a group of family-run tea-plantations in Assam, and his daughter Anisha, to hear about their work in 5 tea estates in Assam and taste a selection of their high quality orthodox teas.
Learn about their organic tea production and the company’s care for the ecology of the plantations' micro-environments; hear about their work with local communities; and discover opportunities to join their tourism programme – during which visitors can stay in beautifully refurbished planters’ bungalows, drink tea served on tree-houses, enjoy a beautiful evening of singing & dancing by local villagers, take a ride on the majestic river Brahmaputra (with a picnic on one of its islands), visit the amazing Kaziranga National Park (home to the Great Indian One Horned Rhinoceros and countless species of birds), visit the Tocklai Tea Research Station in Jorhat, Assam, and a host of other activities.
Do join us for an interactive evening and the story of four generations of a family of Assam tea planters.
