Our Guide to Assam Teas & Gardens Is Here at Last!

Well, dear humans, months and months of work by my ‘she’ human have finally resulted in the completion of our Guide to Assam Teas & Gardens. Assam tea is our favorite here. Two we like to keep in stock are Lochan Gold from Lochan Tea Ltd. and Bihu Bold from Shona’s Assam Tea. I steeped up plenty of each to keep my ‘she’ human alert as she worked through the night and into the wee hours of the morning.

This guide goes far beyond anything previously posted on this site and includes an extensive (but possibly not complete) list of the tea gardens as well as information on some of the top tea companies. You will also see information on how the tea leaves are processed and tips on preparing.

Little Yellow Teapot Spouts Off: Robert Fortune – Tea Drinker’s Hero

This little teapot is getting rather upset at the derisive terms being used to describe Robert Fortune (16 Sept. 1812 – 13 April 1880). He was a botanist from Edinburgh who is credited with introducing tea plants to the area around the town of Darjeeling in West Bengal, India, in 1848, ending China’s monopoly on tea. He is called a thief and accused of stealing tea plants from China. Time for me to set the record straight and put Fortune in his proper place in tea history: a hero to many tea drinkers around the world. And to us teapots, as well. TOOOT!

While this site does its best to refrain from anything even slightly political, being of partial “indigenous” ancestry, we thought a few words here were in order. And of course, since this site is focused on tea and all things related, we had to mention a word or two on that side of things as well. Cheers and happy reading.
