Falap is an indigenous tea produced and consumed by the Singpu Tribes Bordering Assam & Arunachal Pradesh. It is a traditional homemade tea. Tea leaves are collected and dried in the sun or pan pried before pounding them into fresh bamboo stems. The stems are then sealed, and the tubed tea inside bamboos is smoked for months. This process may continue even years, further ripening the tea inside bamboo stems and imparting an intense smoky flavour. In technical terms, Falap is the only known Pu’erh from India.
