Geographically, Assam in India and Sri Lanka, formerly known as Ceylon, are (relatively) near to one another. However, when it comes to tea, there are notable differences. Assam Tea became a possibility when the Camellia sinensis var assamica plant was found growing in the region in 1823. Before then, China had dominated the worldwide Tea Trade, but India, then a British colony, soon began to compete throughout the 19th Century.
The concept of a Ceylon Tea was kickstarted in the 19th Century as well. But unlike its Assamese counterpart, Ceylon Tea became a necessity following the failure of the Ceylon Coffee Industry. Years before Ceylon Tea, the country, then also a British colony, had been faced with a destructive disease known as coffee rust. The disease had swept through coffee plantations across the island, near ruining the Ceylonese economy. Tea production was the answer and soon became a brand unto itself. Today, any tea classified as a “Ceylon Tea” must be manufactured entirely in Sri Lanka; it must also conform to strict quality standards laid down and administered by the Sri Lanka Tea Board. Even a blend that’s 95% Sri Lankan cannot be classified as a Ceylon Tea without these standards in place. Assam Tea, on the other hand, has equally shrewd standards, all of which contributes to quality. Here at The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company, meanwhile, that same quality is assured with every cup of Kentish Breakfast Tea you make.

Health Benefits: In the UK alone, an estimated 750,000 people suffer from conditions such as Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, with the number set to double in the next 40 years as Britain’s population ages. According to a report published in the “American Journal of Clinical Nutrition”, one recent study has uncovered correlations between frequent Black Tea consumption and the reduced risk of cognitive decline.
Experts at the University of Singapore gathered 2,500 volunteers aged 55 or over for tests related to cognitive function. When the experiment was repeated 2 years later, the results established that those who had drunk two to three cups of black tea a day during the 2 year period were 55% less likely to be subjected to cognitive decline. Furthermore, those who had drunk six to ten cups a day were up to 63% less likely.
