Assam Teas

Assam teas are grown in low-lying plains in the delta of the Brahmaputra River in India where the climate is damp and tropical. These black teas are full-bodied, malty, and thick.

The tea plant native to the Assam region of India is called Camellia sinensis varassamica. The leaves are broad and large. The Chinese variety, Camellia sinensis sinensis, is grown in Darjeeling because of the cooler climate. The leaves are small and delicate.
