In the northeastern state of Assam in India, along the Brahmaputra River grow the hearty, malty Assam teas. The heavy rainfall and hot, humid day time temperatures in this area create the perfect green house like environment for growth, as well as helping to create the unique taste found only in Assam teas. Their distinct flavor can be enjoyed "as is"; however, Assam teas are often used in conjunction with other teas to create numerous blends, specifically breakfast teas.

The Hathiuli Tea Estate is located in the Golaghat & Karbi-Anglong districts next to the famous Kaziranga National Park, (home to the "one-horned rhino" that adorns the official Assam tea logo). The name Hathikuli is derived from the Assamese words "Hathi" (elephant) and "Kuli" (Frequent) which translates into a place that is frequently visited by elephants.

In 2007 the estate began converting to organic farming practices to keep in harmony with the neighboring Park. They achieved organic certification in 2011. Their commitment to environmental protection has made it a haven for many wild animals (including Bengal tigers) and birds as well as natural predators that feed on tea plant pests. The estate holds certifications such as ISO 22000 (Food Safety), SA 8000 (Social Accountability), Organic Certification and Rain Forest Alliance.

These large, slightly twisted black leaves produce a bright cup. The full flavor and brisk but smooth taste will make this a morning favorite.

Brew tea at 212º - steep for 3 minutes.

Assam teas complement foods such as chocolate, spiced desserts, meat, strong cheeses, fish and more.

Hathikuli Estate

Optimal Brewing: 4 minutes, 212 degreesNotes: Astringent liquor, with an oily, red wine texture that luckily isnt too thick or oppressive. Smells sweet and malty before steeping, but after and especially during cooldown it becomes a spice. Maybe bergamot. Fairly well balanced and pleasant tea, but not quite exceptional.

Nice tea, but where is the 'Assam' flavour?

The Nokhroy Assam has disappeared from the SV Assam line-up, so it was time to try something new! The catalogue description ('bright, brisk, smooth') of the Hathikuli doesn't give too many clues to its taste, but its fruitiness is immediately noticeable. There is also a woodsy and slight smokey note. Unfortunately, I could not find enough of the traditional Assam flavour I prefer, to consider this tea a winner for me. Many people will enjoy it because it is easily drinkable, but for me it wasn't the kind of Assam I like.

Smoky!!!

Ordered this tea out of curiosity, and was not disappointed. Although I am not an afficionado of smoked teas, I enjoyed the smoky flavour, especially since the underlying tea is a very nice Assam, as far as I can tell. This makes the tea quite palatable, even if it definitely is not for everyone. Would combine nicely with a meal, I think.
