Tea, the miracle drink originated in China and was declared a health drink 5000 years back, by Chinese Emperor, Chen Nungmore. While boiling water below a Tea tree, a leaf fell into his pot and the king found the drink refreshing. Chinese believe it to be Divine Healer. Tea has been known to the tribes of Assam for a long time, who are of the oriental stock and took Tea as a health drink. Local Tribal Singpho chief, Bisa Gaum helped C A Bruce in 1823, to discover Assam variety of Tea Plant 'Camelia Sinesis Var Assamica'. Assam tea is an Indian black tea, produced in the Assam region in Northern India. Most of the tea is grown by the Brahmaputra River. The Assam region is the world's largest tea growing area, with over 800 estates, and Assam tea is the world's most produced tea. While the Assam region has wild tea plants, these do not produce a palatable brew. Modern-day Assam tea is harvested from plants that are a hybrid of native Assam plants and Chinese tea plants. Though "Assam" generally denotes the distinctive black teas from Assam, the region produces relatively smaller quantities of green and white teas as well with their own distinctive characteristics.
