About type of tea
Tea connoisseurs around the world admit that black Indian tea has the strongest “awakening effect”. The finest and most exquisite Indian teas are those grown in the North of the country in Assam province where the Himalayas surround the Brahmaputra river valley sunk in abundant vegetation.
Monsoons bring rains to the valley and in summer the daily precipitation level of 250-300 is not something unusual. Add up to this the average temperature of +35°C and you will get one big hotbed. Such heat almost instantly destroys the Chinese variety of the tea plant - Camelia Sinensis but ideally matches its Indian relative – Camelia Assamica discovered by Englishmen in the forests of this Indian province in 1823.
It was a harsh reality check for the British when the saplings grown in Calcutta botanical garden from the seeds of Camelia Sinensis began to die on the plantations cleared up with so much effort right in the jungles. Indian variety of tea plant became the last hope for the British because in 1830 the Chinese emperor imposed ban on the export of tea from China outraged by the opium trafficking conducted by the East-Indian Company in his country. Fortunately, one of the East-Indian Co. employees, Charles Bruce, persuaded his heads to try cultivation of the local tea plants. The experiment proved successful and in 1838 the first lot of Assam tea was quite enthusiastically received in London.
Greenfield Classic Breakfast brilliantly continues the tradition started by brave men who set up tea plantations in Assam province fighting with jungles, summer heat, winter cold and wild animals. By the way, tigers and leopards still live in Assam today. Classic Breakfast will please you with full, thick flavour, viscid and rich aroma and strikingly bright brew colour. Accordingly to one of the theories name Assam comes from the Sanskrit word “asom” that means something “unusual”, “wonderful”. Undoubtedly these attributes all too well match the best Indian tea produced in this province.
