Assam from India

Assam is a state located in northeast India. Its history with Tea began in 1823, a relatively recent occurrence when compared to the 5,000-year-old history of Chinese Tea!

A Scottish explorer and merchant named Robert Bruce discovered Indian Tea in Rangpur (present-day Sivasagar). He eventually passed the leaves on to his brother, Charles Alexander Bruce, who studied them at the Calcutta Botanical Gardens. It ultimately gave rise to an Indian Tea Industry.

Health Benefits of this Loose Leaf Tea 

Did you know that Black Tea can improve oral health? The answers come from a collaborative study conducted in conjunction with the College of Dentistry at the University of Iowa and the Institute of Odontology at Göteborg University in Sweden.

Participants in the US division used Black Tea to rinse their mouth with for 30 seconds, five times, waiting three minutes between each rinse to simulate the effect of sipping Tea. Meanwhile, the Swedish division saw participants rinse their mouth with Black Tea for one minute, ten times a day. Both co-operating studies noted that the more participants rinsed, the more their plaque and bacteria levels fell.

This is because of the polyphenolic compounds present in all types of Black Tea. These antioxidants can kill or suppress cavity-causing bacteria from either growing or producing acid. Furthermore, the Tea also affects the bacterial enzymes while preventing them from forming the sticky-like material that binds plaque to teeth.
