Tea of the week: Assam Tarajulie FBOP

No winners last week, not a real surprise since I've so neglected this blog. This weeks tea is Assam Tarajulie, a thick full bodied tea that is a great morning tea! Please comment below for a chance to win 4 ounces of this wonderful tea.


Tarajulie is a beautiful estate that lies in the shadows of the Himalayan mountains on the Bramaputra River plain. On a clear day the majestic mountains are visible on the northern horizon. The estate was purchased by the George Williamson Group of companies in the mid 1980’s and they have maintained the high standards that this estate was known for. The estate produces only orthodox manufactured tea. You might ask - What gives Assam tea its special characteristics? The Assam valley is dominated by the Brahmaputra River - a large slowly meandering river which over millennia of spring and fall flooding has deposited a rich loam over the valley. The soil is a deep and sandy and 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.

Back in stock this week is Decaf English Breakfast, Decaf Peach Apricot and Keemun 3 Monkey. I hear from my supplier that Chinese black teas will probably be going up in price soon, so stock up.

Fall sales have definitely kicked in and our Fall Sampler is as popular as ever...go check it out! Last weekend hubby and grandson went camping with the Boy Scout den and they were gone all weekend, boy was it quiet ... just me and the dogs! The leaves are starting to come down like crazy, I think we will be raking this weekend. The fall colors are beautiful this year. How is it in your neck of the woods? Have a great week!

I haven't tried many assams, and none yet from your company. This one does sound interesting.
