Discover Assam Tea
Assam tea comes from the Camellia Sinensis var. Assamica tea plant and is produced in the region of Assam, India.
The tea plantations of Assam were introduced by the British during the colonial period.
Assam tea is cultivated at or near sea level as it lies along the Brahmaputra river which stretches from the Himalayas through to the Bay of Bengal.
The soil in the region of Assam is rich and fertile and benefits from a hot monsoon season.
Assam tea is more oxidised than green or white teas; which results in Assam’s classic, dark leaf appearance.
The growing conditions combined with the oxidisation process results in Assam’s full-bodied, malty flavour as well as its strong and brisk taste.
