Assam Chota Tingrai Estate TGFOP (organic)$8.00 – $56.00
The Chota Tingrai Tea Estate is located in the Tinsukia district of Assam. Run by young and progressive thinking, fourth generation tea farmers, they are a great example of change agents in Assam toward sustainable and ethical farming.

The liquor aroma is honeyed with notes of black currant and apricot, delivering a smooth and full mouthfeel right from the start. One may detect hints of fruit, wood and even fresh melon.
