ORIGINS OF ASSAM TEA

 

Tea was first discovered in Assam by a Scottish adventurer named Robert Bruce in 1823. He noticed tea-like plants growing wild near Rangpur. On noticing the plant, Bruce approached Bessa Gam the local chief of the singpho tribe men who showed Bruce how they used the leave of that very plant to brew tea. Robert convinced the chief to give him a few leaves of the plant with the seed for examination, however, Robert passed away a few years later before the plant was classified.

 

Robert's brother, Charles sent the leaves to a botanical garden in Calcutta in the early 1830s. The plant was examined and then classified as a variety of tea and named Camellia sinensis var, Assamic. Thus began the cultivation and production of the Assam tea.

 

 

THE STRONG BLACK: ASSAM TEA TASTE

 

The strong flavour and brisk profile of the Assam tea are what makes it a favourite among tea connoisseurs who prefer their tea strong. The Assam tea plantation is the largest single tea plantation in the world and the core source of the British tea. The malty flavour present in the Assam tea is because most of the tea gardens in Assam are at sea level.

 

The strong flavours of the Assam tea make it the ideal breakfast tea. Famous teas like the English Breakfast and Irish Breakfast black teas have their source in Assam.

 

The region of Assam lies on the banks of the massive Brahmaputra River. The regions’ hot humid conditions which have a greenhouse effect make it the perfect environment for the Chinary and Assamica tea plant.

 

 

TEA GRADES PRODUCED IN ASSAM

 

Assam has 2 harvest seasons a year; the first flush that starts in March and goes up until late May and the second flush in June when the famous "tippy" tea is produced. The Tippy tea is a more superior variety of tea as it has a fuller body and a sweeter flavour.

 

Assam tea estates have the right conditions to produce both varieties of teas; the orthodox tea and the Assam CTC (Crush, Tear, Curl) tea variety. In addition to this, Assam is also known for producing the Assam green tea and oolong tea. Tea suppliers in Assam have tea grades that include the whole leaf, broken leaf, fannings, and dust tea grades.

 

You can buy the famous Assam black tea or the Assam tea bags online. No matter how you choose to have the Assam tea, if you love your tea strong, you’ll love this variety of tea.
