Accomplishments

The Assam Heritage Tea journey begins

Assam Heritage Tea together with their associates set up the very first speciality Tea Factory in the outskirts of Digboi, Assam.

The second Speciality Tea Factory set up in the Upper Siang region of Arunachal Pradesh. Export of Speciality Tea to U.K., U.S.A, France and Hong Kong started.

Our first foray into the USA tea market began with www.tealet.com holding our hand and energising along the way. We feel proud to be associated with this incredible team who place a high premium on transparency, sustainable farming and promote connection between people and places behind the tea. Their adventures can be viewed here – Youtube

The first consignment of Assam Heritage Special Green Tea received good response at the Guwahati Tea Auction which sold for Rs. 1000 per kg.

The third Speciality Tea unit was set up in North Patkai Hills, Arunachal Pradesh

Assam Heritage Tea also, successfully helped set up a CTC Factory in West Patkai Hills, Arunachal Pradesh

For help and support to establish standards for quality in the international Tea Industry, Mr.Rajen Baruah (Managing Director, Assam Heritage Tea) was felicitated and awarded by the International Speciality Tea Association of U.S.A.

Three high quality speciality teas crafted- Rajen’s Golden Buds, compressed White Tea cakes and Heritage Wild Green Tea.

Initiative and skills training given to 150 small tea growers to start processing teas from their own plantation.

Our sister concerns located in some of the most inaccessible and remote areas of the North East face different challenges from living in proximity to forests. The diktats of village life being as old as the mountains , harmonious co-existence is much revered and held sacred. The improved inputs and extra motivational methods we impart has added to their overall well being. There are fewer instances of destruction and human elephant conflict. Small
scale land holdings with tea plantations are secure with ample corridors and safe passage ways for elephants and wild life. For adherence to standards, Teas from such regions are marketed as elephant approved.
