A very late starter compared to China, it all happened at once in India in the late 18th century - the lowland loving Assamica tea plant was discovered, the high growing Chinese variant tea was planted in Darjeeling in the foothills of the Himalayas and the expansion continued to the Nilgiri in the south. The East India Company was integral to all that development and the impetus behind what is now the 2nd largest tea producer in the world.

We have fine examples of black teas from across the breadth of India, from 1st Flush Darjeeling, to the very finest 2nd Flush Assam.
