What are Assam Black Tea Bags?
Assam Tea originates from the north-eastern Indian state of the same name. The region finds itself nestled between the Himalayas, the Brahmaputra plains and the Deccan plateau - factors of which create 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.
A Brief History of Assam Breakfast Tea Bags
Until 1823, just 200 years ago, Assam Tea didn't exist. While it might sound like a long time ago, it’s worth noting that Chinese Tea dates back 5,000 years to 2737 BCE.
Assam Tea, in comparison, is a relatively new creation. It was the indigenous Singpho communities that discovered it, but it was a Scotsman named Robert Bruce who realised its commercial promise.
Nowadays, Assam is one of India’s three central Tea-growing regions, accounting for 55% of the country’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, which go above and beyond to impress casual drinkers and connoisseurs alike. We guarantee you won’t be disappeared.

These are made from plant-based materials, thus making them “bioplastic.” Although not a perfect solution, it is just one of several ways we’re trying to step up and help protect the environment.
