Pabhojan Gold Tea, a rare variety of organic tea from Assam's Golaghat district, was on Monday sold at a whopping Rs 1 lakh per kilogram, the highest this year, by an auction centre in Jorhat. A Jorhat Tea Auction Centre (JTAC) official said the tea sold by Pabhojan Organic Tea Estate was purchased by Esah Tea, an Assam-based tea brand.
Pabhojan Gold Tea offers a bright yellow liquor with a soothing after-taste and is made from the choicest second flush tips plucked from the tea estate. The tips turn golden and add a hue to the beverage.
Chief Executive Officer of Esah Tea, Bijit Sarma, said the tea variety will help them to provide their customers with one of the finest tea blends from Assam.
