Assam gold tea sold at record Rs 39,001 per kg

Guwahati, Jul 25 (PTI) A line of gold special grade tea produced by a tea garden in Assam has been sold for a record Rs 39,001 per kg in the Guwahati Tea Auction Centre (GTAC).

The exclusive gold tea produced by Manohari Tea Estate at Dibrugarh broke all price records of any tea auction centre in the world when it came under the hammer yesterday, GTAC sources.

The tea was stated to have been auctioned by a Guwahati based tea broker company and bought also by a city-based tea trading firm for its buyers in Delhi and Ahmedabad.

A lot of effort and dedication is put into the tea estate for manufacturing "such a world class tea which looks like crystals of pure 24 carat gold", Manohari Tea Estate proprietor Rajan Lohia said. PTI ESB NN NN
