Assam

A Lowland Speciality

Assam, a state in the northeast of India, is the largest tea growing area in the world. In the early-19th Century, its indigenous tea bush, Camellia sinensis (var. assamica), was discovered growing wild by the Scottish adventuter Robert Bruce. Most tea is grown in the hilly and mountainous areas of India but, unusually, Assam tea is grown in the lowlands. The nutrient rich clay soil found in the floodplain of the mighty Brahmaputra River gives Assam tea its brisk, malty flavour and vibrant colour.

This season's single-estate:
Established in 1943, the 600 hectares Chota Tingrai Tea Estate spans over the Tinsukia district of Assam. Home to 600 families, the estate works towards bringing socio-economic development for their community by training and developing local talent to join their management team. A cup from this estate not only allows you to enjoy high quality of the bold Assam flavour, but also contribute towards the Chota Tingrai mission of preserving the heritage of tea while transforming it into a modern, global industry.

Our Classic Tins aim to promote a handful of tea gardens from Assam, Darjeeling, Kangra and Nilgiris and bring the consumer closer to the producer of their daily tea. #KnowYourTea
