Royal Assam Orthodox Leaf
If tea perfection had a name, it would be this traditional Assam Orthodox. This tea is not only delicious to drink, but it’s also a visual treat. Assam leaf orthodox is a burst of sweet, malty flavours which finishes off on a sharper note. The distinctive smokiness lingers in the cup, making it one to savour and admire for a long time.
- Being an organic whole leaf tea, it provides many health benefits among which weight loss is the main attraction.
The introduction of the Assam tea is attributed to Robert Bruce, a Scottish explorer who came across it in 1823. During his business visit to Assam, Bruce discovered the plant growing “wild.” Local people (the Singhpos) were brewing tea from the bush’s leaves. Bruce soon explored the possibility of scientifically testing it through samples. Unfortunately, Bruce passed away before the plant could be properly classified.
Then in the 1830s, Roberts’s brother Charles arranged for the tea to be sent to the botanical gardens of Calcutta for proper examination, where it was then classified as a new variety of tea and termed Camellia sinensis var assamica.
