North by Northeast
Rujani Tea sources its single origin tea from the Aideobarie Tea Estates, situated on the banks of the River Teok, which meanders its way down from the Naga Hills to the south of the farm, and then flows north to the tributaries of the mighty Brahmaputra river in Assam, India.
The exact geo-coordinates of the estate are 27.0460976°N, 95.0723523°E, which we use in all our packaging to denote our product traceability.
Teok River flows by the side of Section No 30 at Aideobarie, the section from where we get the leaf for our award winning Tippy Reserve
It was in this exact location that the founding fathers of Aideobarie Tea Estates planted the first few rows of tea in the year 1897.
For over hundred and twenty two years and through four generations, the farmer-founders have been keepers of tradition. They were pioneers then, they are explorers now!
Rujani Tea has been innovating to develop a range of whole leaf teas with a driving philosophy to reintroduce the ‘original way’ of making, brewing and enjoying tea. Tea was never meant to be drunk with milk. History records, milk was added to protect the delicate porcelain that our favourite brew was poured into.
Rujani Tea has been in the forefront of tea research, be it with TOCKLAI the oldest tea research institute in the world or other institutions of pre-eminence. At Rujani Tea, innovation is not merely a buzzword, it is a responsibility we take seriously.
Along with furthering the quest to innovate, Rujani has always focussed on sustainability with a firm commitment to nurturing the land that the tea grows in and also ensuring that the community that helps to produce the special teas, is well looked after.
