Biography/History

The Adelaide-based form of D. and J. Fowler Limited introduced the Amgoorie line of teas in 1890, the name coming from the Amgurie region of India, where the company imported tea from three estates. The line expanded considerably in the 1920s. (See: Years to remember, 1854-1954: a record of the first hundred years of the business of D. and J. Fowler Limited (1954), p. 76).
