Because Portsmouth Tea has two origins, it also has two stories related to its creation. Assam, a state in India, only started producing Tea during the 19th Century. A Scottish explorer and merchant named Robert Bruce discovered Tea growing in Assam in 1823, and since then, the Industry hasn’t look back! Today, Assam Tea is one of the most popular Teas in the world. Connoisseurs describe their overall taste as notably smooth and refreshing, with some going as far as to say they’re better than Chinese Teas despite China being the home of Tea.
And if you thought India’s Tea Industry was young (which, compared to China’s 5,000-year-old history with Tea, it is), then it’s worth noting that Zimbabwe only started growing Tea in 1924! Fascinatingly, the first seeds used in the growing of Zimbabwean Tea originated from Assam! But although the Camellia sinensis var assamica (Tea) plants flourished and produced good quality Tea, large-scale commercial Tea-growing didn’t occur until the 1960’s. Now, most Zimbabwean Tea travels to the United Kingdom for use in Tea blends. Portsmouth 50 Tea Bags is one such example.

It essentially converts the fuel in your food into energy, which is then used to power near enough everything we do. We already know that the frequent consumption of Portsmouth Tea and other Black Teas can boost the metabolism; but specifically, it stimulates weight loss by increasing the metabolic rate of the body, particularly when it comes to metabolising carbohydrates.
