What is Assam Tea?

Assam Tea originates from the north-eastern state of the same name. The northern Himalayas, the Brahmaputra plains and the Deccan plateau surround the region of Assam, creating one of the richest biodiversity zones in the world.

It experiences heavy rainfall (2,500-3,000 mm annually) and high humidity throughout the year. These make perfect conditions for growing Assam Tea.

History of Assam Tea

Until 1823, just over 200 years ago, Assam Tea didn't exist. This may sound like a long time, but compare it to Green Tea, which has existed since 2737 BCE! By comparison, Assam Tea is, indeed, a relatively new creation! A Scottish adventurer named Robert Bruce discovered Assam Tea in 1823.

Before then, the British Raj had attempted to grow the Chinese Camellia sinensis var sinensis plant. However, these experiments failed. The discovery made by Bruce paved the way for an Indian Tea Industry. The country hasn't looked back since!

Today, Assam is one of the three central Tea-growing regions of India. It accounts for 55% of India's total Tea output. Here at The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company, we select only the best for our customers. This very much applies to our Assam Tea Bags.

Why Drink Assam Tea Bags

Black Tea can enhance cognitive function. This is according to a study conducted at the University of Singapore and published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

The research project saw some 2,500 participants aged 55 or over undergo cognitive measuring.

Two years later, scientists re-evaluated those involved. The results established that participants who drank two or three cups of Black Tea a day had a 55% lower chance of suffering from cognitive decline. Those who drank six to ten cups a day, meanwhile, had up to a 63% lower chance.
