The Sakhira Tea Garden is located 19 kilometres from the Ilam Haat Bazar. Ilam translates into Winding Way, a rather lovely name for an area that produces flavours that dance on the tongue. In 2000, a group of farmers from the Ilam area set up the Sakhira Tea Garden, taking full advantage of the mountainous terrain, which is perfect for growing tea.  


Tea plantations were first introduced to India by the British in the 19th century, after Robert Fortune stole Chinese tea cuttings to plant in the Himalayan region of Darjeeling. Today Indian tea is some of the most famous in the world: it's also home to Assam tea, found growing wild there by the Scottish explorer Robert Bruce.

Store in a sealed jar or tin, such as our Fill-Me-Up Tea Caddies.
