The Perfect Blend: Assam Tea and Monsoon Vibes

People always say ‘Chai pe Charcha’, but have you ever wondered how it originated or who was that lucky person to discover your all-time favourite Chai? What would have happened if there was no Chai around you?

Let’s uncover the aromatic world of Assam tea - the legend of all the teas!

The Origins of Assam Tea

The tale of Assam tea traces back to the early 19th century when the British explorer, Robert Bruce, stumbled upon wild tea plants growing in the fertile valleys of Assam. Delighted by this botanical marvel, he took samples back to his brother, Charles Alexander Bruce, who, with the help of local tribes, began cultivating these precious plants on the misty slopes of the Brahmaputra River. Thus, the first Assam tea plantation was born, setting the stage for a tea revolution that would soon take the world by storm.

The Brewing Revolution

Traditionally, Assam tea is harvested using the traditional method, where skilled tea pluckers carefully hand-pick the tender, topmost leaves and buds from the tea bushes. These leaves are then subjected to a rigorous process of withering, rolling, and oxidation infusing the brew with a distinct malty flavour and a rich reddish-brown hue. This process, coupled with the unique climate of the region, led to the creation of the renowned "monsoon tea," known for its exceptional taste and strength. 

However, as time progressed, the tea industry embraced innovation, introducing the CTC (Crush, Tear, Curl) method. This modern technique revolutionized tea production, enhancing efficiency while preserving the unique flavors. With CTC, the leaves undergo a mechanical process that results in smaller, evenly-sized particles, ideal for brewing a strong cup of Assam tea.

Further, one common question that often arises is whether Assam tea is black tea. The answer is yes! The withering, rolling, oxidation, and drying processes that the tea leaves undergo during production render it fully oxidized, giving it the characteristic black hue and bold taste that sets it apart from its counterparts.

To truly experience the magic of Assam tea, steeping is an art in itself. Boil fresh water and add the tea leaves for 3-5 minutes, allowing the flavors to unfurl and infuse the water thoroughly. Adding milk and sugar is a popular choice for those who prefer a more indulgent cup, but drinking it black preserves its full-bodied intensity.
