Old tea caddy from south India from the Brooke bonds heritage plantation. Used on the plantation to collect tea from the fields. Brooke Bond Taj Mahal tea leaves are grown in estates of Upper Assam, Darjeeling and Tripura. It grows on the northern banks of the great Brahmaputra, which floods its banks every monsoon, creating a rich, humid soil. There is plentiful rain in the monsoon and humidity lasts through the year. The soil and weather together give Assam Tea its 'terroir' – a dark red brew, a strong malty flavor and deep body. This is a unique one-of- kind piece and great as a statement piece in any restaurant, café or other project!
We travel through India to find the most beautiful and unique items we can find. These products we found in abandoned factories, land washed ships, vintage local markets or other places that we have discovered. We restore, recycle and redesign the interior treasures that we find while preserving the story of their past. Our mission is to pass them on to a new home where they will be appreciated for many years to come.
