Borengajuli Assam Estate Tea - Medium Caffeine Level / Very High Antioxidant Level
Borengajuli was one of the first Assam estates whose produce was vacuum packed. Tea goes through a natural oxidation process whereby it ages due to its interaction with oxygen. By vacuum packing this process is arrested until the vacuum is broken. When our supplier repacks Borengajuli, it is out of a vacuum for no more than 30 minutes after which it is re-vacuumed. In essence this tea is literally 2 hours old in terms of freshness when it arrives in our shop. The only place to get fresher tea would be to go to the estate itself.
