Assam: Travellers can sip local handmade tea when they visit Kaziranga next time

While you attend Kaziranga next time, one must find sometime to cherish a cup of local handmade tea.

The tea is produced by small tea growers of Karbi Anglong which was launched by Aaranyak.

Aaranyak is a well-known  biodiversity organisation in the region.

The three varieties of Karbi handmade tea — Karbi handmade black tea( smoked), Karbi handmade orthodox and Karbi handmade Rosella tea — are available now at Pirbi Ethnic Haat situated by the national highway at Kohora in Kaziranga National Park, reports East Mojo.

“Tea has been grown in the Karbi highlands of Assam since the 1960s, mostly in small homesteads. Generations of families have ensured quality, delicious crops that are highly desirable. In the absence of access to markets, these small homestead tea gardens are leased out to middlemen of large industries at a throwaway price. The tea growers are often exploited and receive a pittance for their hard work,” Dr. Firoz Ahmed, a senior scientist at Aaranyak told the news portal.
