Tea

This estate enjoys excellent climatic conditions on the north bank of the Brahmaputra river. This, along with its proximity to the neighbouring forests of Arunachal Pradesh, assures a premium quality leaf and a unique brew. A cup of Koilamari tea incorporates both, a ‘brightness’ which is characteristic of the North bank of Assam’s Brahmaputra river, as well as a certain 'maltiness and thickness' of a cup originating from the tea estates near the Southern bank.

This estate is named after the neighboring area of Majulighur, which in turn got its name from the 17th century Assamese queen, ‘Maju Rani’. The Majulighur tea estate has long since been a hotbed of field and factory innovations for MKSEL. Some of our very first 'pilot' projects were carried out here and in one of the boldest moves by the company, Majulighur’s entire factory was technologised and converted from CTC to Orthodox manufacture, within a span of a single season. This estate now manufactures nearly 1.5 million kg of Orthodox tea.

Tea

This estate is fondly known as the good ol’ great grandfather of Orthodox tea estates in the Assam Valley. From 1948-1960, rare seed stock of orthodox teas were planted here. Gingia Tea estate is known to be a blenders dream due to its strong, gutty cups and a standard leaf appearance throughout the year. Gingia regularly achieves quality certifications from the Tea Board of India for its teas that can imbibe any blend with that unique 'Assam- tea' character.

Seajuli is named after ‘Seal Nahar’, a local plant, and ‘Juli’, an Assamese term for the neighboring streams. This estate has contributed immensely to the industry by producing clone cuttings- S8, S16, S19 & S25, which have been recognized and accepted by the TRA. It is situated fairly close to Koilmari, its gentle rolling slopes setting it apart from the relatively flat topography of Assamese tea estates. Seajuli is celebrated for its production of premium orthodox tea, and a sweet cup that is reminiscent of wild honey.

Singlijan derives its name from the Assamese word, ‘Hingoolijan’, meaning ‘river of the Hingooli fish’. This estate produces premium orthodox tea that has become the yardstick for quality leaf and cup across local as well as international markets. Singiljan produces a vibrant, rich-bodied cup with the delicate aromas of wood and red berries. Each sip introduces a soft note of dates which gives way to a pleasant, lingering maltiness.

The current HQ for MKSEL's south-bank operations, Bordubi serves as a landmark as well as a tea estate. It manufactures well rolled heavy black teas with a distinctly gutty and thick cup. It has one of the group's largest factory structures, which has been recently renovated and equipped with brand new lines of orthodox tea manufacturing machines. This tea estate even features its very own 9-hole golf course and a multi-sports club house where staff from the neighbouring MKSEL gardens meet up every weekend to exchange notes over a round or two.

The estate is located right on the banks of the mighty Brahmaputra river and its neighbours include the illustrious 'Dighaltarang tea estate' and 'Dibru Saikhowa National Park'.

Beesakopie's teas are reminiscent of honey and caramel overtones, with the whisper of a delicate woodiness. Beesakopie’s factory is one of the largest in Assam; and their teas make for a brisk, multi-layered cup which lingers on your palette long after you've drained your cup of tea. Their distinctly sweet aromas can brighten up almost any cup. Beesakopie Tea Estate also houses the fully-staffed Central Hospital, which is one of the largest and most well equipped hospitals in the area with facilities such as emergency OPD, operation theatre, maternity wards, X-Ray and imaging as well as a dental department.

Tea

Settled close to the Burmese border in the Tinsukia district, Daimukhia's leaves are plucked and transported to factories in the neighbouring estates of Beesakopie and Raidang for manufacturing. While going through the lush green fields of tea in this estate, one comes across a site with the remains of an old building, which was once the estate's factory in the early 1900's. The story of how the factory building came down is one of myths and legends - perfect for discussing over a cup of tea on a lazy afternoon.

Tea

Raidang Tea Estate, the erstwhile HQ of the fabled ‘Doom Dooma Tea Company’, is one our largest tea estates in terms of land area (just under 2000 hectares!). It produces a full-bodied, robust and brisk Assam cup which beams with pronounced notes of malt right from the start. These flavors hum along throughout, briefly interrupted by subtle undertones of raspberry around the edges which add a layer of depth and a rounded feel to the liquor. Soft sweetness akin to dried drupes can be picked up in the aftertaste.

Tea

The sister estate of Raidang, both estates enjoy several similar qualities and terroir. However, while the Raidang cup possesses a hint of raspberry, the tea from Samdang embodies more of a floral note. Samdang, along with Raidang, Daimukhia and Beesakopie, constituted the famous erstwhile Doom Dooma Tea Company gardens. Now, under the fold of MKSEL's tea estates, all their factories have been modernised, automated and converted from CTC to Orthodox which brings out the true flavour and characteristics of the teas manufactured in this region.
