About Assam Tea
When people think of Black Tea, thoughts often drift to Assam, India. However, India has only produced Black Tea for around 200 years. China's Tea Industry, in comparison, dates back some 5,000 years. During the 18th and 19th Centuries, the British Raj ruled over India. On many occasions, the British had tried to grow Chinese Tea plants in India, but all attempts failed.
In 1823, a Scotsman named Robert Bruce discovered Indian Tea growing in Assam. This became known as Camellia sinensis var Assamica. In time, Bruce's discovery gave rise to a thriving Indian Tea Industry. Today, it continues to grow at a rapid rate. The Sewpur Tea Estate is one such establishment leading the way. Our Assam Tea Sewpur, in particular, is one of our favourites!

Benefits of Assam Tea Sewpur
Did you know that Assam Tea Sewpur contains a wealth of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants? Its two primary antioxidants, theaflavin and thearubigins, work well together in the fight against oxidation. This natural, though harmful, process introduces free radicals to the body.
Free radicals, in turn, are unpaired (and unsafe) electrons that latch onto their healthy counterparts. This can cause untold damage, often increasing the risks of developing a multitude of chronic conditions. Assam Tea Sewpur, on the other hand, reduces these risks.
Furthermore, this Tea can enhance cognitive function. It can also boost the metabolism of fat cells. This particular Black Tea benefit enables the body to burn fat quicker and more efficiently. Ultimately, this can potentially lead to weight loss.
