Manufacturer of Assam orthodox and CTC Tea
In the year 1925 Late P.C. Borooah, a pioneer tea-planter of Assam who went on to become a Freedom-fighter and then a Parliamentarian , embarked on a journey into the world of "Tea" by clearing and planting a grant of land known to the inhabitants of the area as "Sundarpur". Inspite of having to travel large distances by foot, bicycle or by bullock cart to reach "Sundarpur", his determination, hard work and persistance slowly bore fruit and the young plantation began to flourish.
In 1975, the reins of administration of the plantation, which by then included Baruakhat and Ratanpur, fell into the hands of his son, late Mr.Jayanta Kumar Borooah, whose single handed toil and devotion established Sundarpur Tea Estate as a producer of high quality Assam tea at the Guwahati Tea Auction Centre. As one of the first Indians to have the opportunity to be trained in tea tea tasting by "A.W Figgis", one of the leading tea broking houses of the time, late Mr.Jayanta Kumar Borooah harboured a dream , to make "Sundarpur" a producer of high quality Assam Tea, and to let the consumers "Taste the difference". Today, Sundarpur Tea Estate produces 1.8 million kilograms of tea annually, while continuing to uphold the values of quality and consistency.
