    Assam is a north eastern province of India. The Behora Estate in Assam's Golaghat district was established in 1908.

The quality of its assam tea has allowed Behora to thrive and grow and today. The total land under tea is nearly 5 square miles, producing approximately 3 million pounds of tea per annum.
