Assam Tea is now known around the world. But it wasn’t always this easy. In fact, just over 190 years ago, the prospect of an Indian Tea Industry seemed laughable! During the 18th and 19th Centuries, India was under the rule of the British Empire who had, on many occasions, attempted to grow tea there. In 1774, Warren Hastings, an English statesman and Governor of the Presidency of Fort William (Bengal), had sent a selection of Chinese Camellia sinensis var sinensis seeds to George Bogie, the then British emissary in Bhutan, for planting. This experiment failed, as the Chinese native plants struggled in the Indian heat. A second attempt took place in 1780, this time under the watchful eyes of British Army Officer, Robert Kyd; however, once again, the plants struggled to flourish.

Then, in 1823, the Camellia sinensis var assamica plant was discovered growing in Assam, prompting the start of the Assam Tea Industry we know and love today. Assam Tea Sewpur is one such example of its momentous success around the world. And now, there is nothing left but to try this delicious, invigorating brew!

Type of Tea: Loose Leaf Black Tea.

Tasting Notes: Looking for a nice, simply cup of Assam Tea? If so, then Assam Tea Sewpur is the choice for you. This tea offers a strong combination of malty and sweet notes. It is very easy-drinking at any time in the day.

Colour in Cup: Ruby liquor with coppery highlights, dark in tone.

Health Benefits: Extensive scientific studies have been able to isolate the key components found in Black Tea, which has long been known to contain the incredible antioxidants, theaflavin and thearubigin. These polyphenols, as they are known, have the ability to combat free radicals found in the body. Free radicals are atoms or groups of atoms with an unpaired number of electrons that can wreak havoc on organs and tissues.

This, in turn, can lead to chronic conditions such as heart disease and even cancer. Antioxidants such as theaflavin and thearubigin, meanwhile, can slow down the effects of harmful oxidation through their work in neutralising free radicals. Could this reduce the risks of developing cancer? We’re not yet sure and as a result, strictly do not endorse its consumption for this purpose; however, the early results look very promising.

    Lovely slightly smoky flavour, bit like a Lapsang, with nice large leaves which don't leave dust in the cup. Enjoying this.
