Assam Tea Facts
Tea dates back some 5,000 years. However, Assam Tea only came into existence 200 years ago.
A Scotsman named Robert Bruce was the man who discovered Assam Tea.
During India’s independence movement, Mahatma Gandhi discouraged drinking Assam Tea due to its association with the British Raj.
Today, India is the second-largest producer of Tea after China. Assam Leaf Tea, in particular, is one of the most popular varieties available.

Assam Mid Season Tea TGFOP1 Benefits
Although not yet proven outright, some researchers believe that Tea (no matter the type) can reduce the risk of developing cancer.
Indeed, preliminary evidence from a 2015 meta-analysis has already shown promising results. It noted that drinking a brew a day could reduce cancer risks by 2%. Those who drank the most Tea, on the other hand, had a 21% lower cancer risk than those who drank none.
It’s essential to note, however, that The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company does not endorse the consumption of Tea for this purpose at this stage. Nevertheless, we support ongoing research.
