Barman said this is the highest price that this kind of Tripura tea has ever fetched in the international markets.
Earlier, the price touched the limit of ten thousand but this time it has reached Rs 12,500.
This tea is exclusively prepared in the Pancham Nagar tea factory located near Kailashahar under Tripura’s Unakoti district being run by a co-operative society.
It is the society that takes over the old government factory and now produces quality tea under the brand name Neermahal tea.
Hand-rolled tea is a special kind of orthodox tea, which is prepared with a special withering mechanism.
