  • Full Description

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.
