Description

Rich and full bodied, with a distinct malty taste that sets it apart from other Assam blends. An even greater indulgence when served with our Butter Shortbread and Clotted Cream Sweet Biscuits. Also available: signature loose leaf tea caddy and individually wrapped pyramid teabags. By 1778, The East India Company realised that tea plantations needed to be established in India to break the Chinese monopoly of this vital trade. Tea Plants were introduced to the Calcutta Botanical Gardens and in 1834 the company discovered that “the tea shrub is beyond all doubt indigenous to Upper Assam”. The Company shipped the first twelve tea chests to London in 1838. The name of this superb Assam blend recalls those pioneering efforts, which led to the phenomenal growth of the tea industry in India. This tea is sourced from a tea estate certified by The Ethical Tea Partnership.
