  • Full Description

    Believe it or not, for all the different varieties of tea there are only two different types of tea plant – one of which originates in Assam, the Camellia assamica. When the British discovered the plants growing wild in the region to the far north-east of India back in the 19th century, they couldn't have been more delighted: after centuries of tricky trade relations with the Chinese, they could finally grow their own tea.

    Our founder Walter Whittard was quick to catch on to the Empire Tea craze, creating a strong, malty tea with substantial body and a rich amber colour. Our traditional teabags are brilliant at breakfast with a splash of milk.

NUMEROLOGY

The lush lowlands down by the Brahmaputra River are home to hundreds of tea gardens: 765, to be precise.

INDIA

Tea plantations were first introduced to India by the British in the 19th century, after Robert Fortune stole Chinese tea cuttings to plant in the Himalayan region of Darjeeling. Today Indian tea is some of the most famous in the world: it's also home to Assam tea, found growing wild there by the Scottish explorer Robert Bruce.

Store in a sealed jar or tin, such as our Fill-Me-Up Tea Caddies.
