In the Background-A Brief History of Assam Tea
In 1823, Robert Bruce, a Scottish adventurer, apparently discovered the Assam tea plant. The discovery is quite interesting. Bruce learned about Tea plants & Singphu Tribe from Maniram Datta Barua, popularly known as Maniram Dewan, a nobleman. Maniram Dewan introduced Mr Bruce to a native tribe called Singhpo. From ancient times the Singphu Tribes are making their own Tea, unknown to the world and they still do that today. Their Tea, known as Falap Tea, possesses an intense smokey flavour with a peculiar storing method within the bamboo stem. Falap is their Traditional, Home Made Tea.
Mr Bruce found the Tea plants growing in the wild hills of Upper Assam had a different leaf size compared to the Chinese Tea Bush. While experimenting, Mr Bruce observed the Assam Tea plant gave a dark and rich tea with a malty flavour, unlike the Chinese Tea plant. From here, the journey of Assam Tea began.
Unfortunately, Mr Bruce could not pursue his research for a longer time and died of illness in 1824. His brother took charge of the mission and sent the Tea Seed, Leaves and Plants to Calcutta for further examination. The botanical investigation revealed that the Assam plant belongs to Tea species and opened the door of Assam Tea to the world.
In the world now there are two main plants of Tea-the Assam and the Chinese Variety. All other Tea plants are a sub-variety of these two mother plants. Most of the Tea in India and the colonial British territories are from the Assam Tea variety or the clonal variations of the Original Assam Tea Plant.
