Beginning with the conversion of their Oothu Estate to organic in 1988, BBTC is a true pioneer of organic tea production in India. Situated in the Singampatti district, in the Western Ghats in Southern India, the estate nestles in the midst of a lush green rain forest, which remains virtually untouched, pristine and completely isolated. The Oothu estate is fully certified organic, as well as carrying Demeter Certification.
In addition, BBTC is producing organic tea in the Nilgiri mountain region of India. The Dunsandle Estate, a high-elevation estate at over 6,000 feet above sea level produces teas with the distinctive Nilgiri aroma and flavor typical of the quality of high-elevation teas.
