India, the land of varied cultures, languages, customs and natural beauty is also home to the ancient Camellia Sinensis, tea bush in other words. Tea drinking has been around in India since the 16th century with a native bush already present in Assam and plantations created in the Nilgiris later by the British.
Indian tea is world renowned for the variety it offers to the palate, from the brisk and malty Assam crop which makes for a vibrant wake-up tea to the unique champagne like muscatel flavour of Darjeeling. To round off the collection are the sweet and light liquors of teas grown in the Nilgiris region in South India.
Conducive weather conditions, naturally helpful soil characteristics and elevations that are amongst the highest in the tea growing world; India brings to the palate some delightful teas year after year.
