Teas of India From around the world

In 1839 the Chinese enforced an embargo on trade with the West due to their unwanted trade in Opium. As a result, the East India Company began taking seedlings out of China to plant overseas so that they would have other avenues from which to source tea. When trials were conducted in Assam it was discovered that not only did the plant grow well, but a derivative, Camellia sinensis Assamica, was found to be already growing there. Today, both “Jaats” are grown to great success in Assam and they are cross pollinated to create new variants designed to help create the perfect Assam, Darjeeling and Nilgiri teas.
