The Bukhial Tea Estate is situated in the Golaghat District and was founded in 1920 on behalf of the McNeil & Berry Company. The rural workers and their families all came from the nearby area of “Bokotial”. The name changed gradually to „Bokial“ and a few years later finally to „Bukhial“. Today, high quality Assam teas are cultivated on about 570 ha. One of these qualities is this rough and regularly grainy CTC. The cup colour is reminiscent of dark teak wood tones, while the bright crimson infusion develops savoury peaty notes. The brew is strong and has a malty, bready depth.
