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. Our signature Assam has a small neat leaf with plenty of golden “tip”: in other words, the best part of the bush. Rolled in the traditional manner for that authentic Assam taste, it's brilliant at breakfast with a splash of milk.
Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

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.
Fully oxidised for a rich, robust flavour, black tea is the most popular type of tea in the western world – and for good reason. Its full body and depth of flavour make many black teas ideal for drinking with a splash of milk, while more delicate varieties like Darjeeling express a huge range of complex characteristics.
