Nayanjyoti Hazarika's Story

“I wanted to be one with nature, in all aspects” is the defining factor that led Nayanjyoti to pursue tea production. Tired of the city life and its chaotic environment, he started tea cultivation in 2011 and ever since then, Nayanjyoti has learned and perfected the art of producing tea.

This love for nature started with him escaping the city on the weekends to capture Assam’s wildlife in its abundant forests and reserves. It is from this experience and by inheriting his father in law's tea garden that he decided to dedicate the last 12 years of his life to handcrafting teas in the most traditional, ecologically sustainable yet in an innovative way.

“I started like all the rest of us do, making green tea and black tea, as a way to earn a living, but soon I discovered that this plant could be turned into different types of teas, that is when I started to experiment and be creative”.
Under the care of his well versed tea master, Nayanjyoti started to produce unorthodox teas which were inspired by the mastery of Chinese teas but with a proper Assamese touch to them.
Half-baked teas, half pu-erh teas and soon enough the famous aged Phalap tea, are all teas that stem from his experiences and learnings.

Nayanjyoti learned the craft of the ancient Singpho tribal tea at the heart of the Singpho tribe, by learning directly from the Singpho tea artisans that keep that tradition alive. Inspired by the pride that the Indian Singpho tribe has been one of the first to make aged tea, Nayanjyoti wanted to share their story, teachings and tea culture with the rest of the world. Most importantly, he wanted to share their care for nature and how they use bamboo as a natural bug repellent.

Being one with nature, also meant for Nayanjyoti to use the best ingredients that nature has to offer. By either growing some of the herbs he uses in his blends like the black basil or sourcing locally from small producers, the things he cannot grow himself, such as the cardamom, which comes directly from a small grower from the southern state of Kerala.

Our team met with Nayanjyoti Hazarika back in 2022. Nayanjyoti has been listed on our platform as a tea producer ever since. If you require any further information regarding Nayanyoti or need visual content for your own marketing materials, please reach out to
