What is the history of Assam Tea? 

In 1823, Assam tea was discovered by a Scottish adventurer, Robert Bruce, who noticed tea-like plants growing wild near Rangpur. Bessa Gam who was the local Singpho chief showed Bruce how local tribesmen brewed tea from leaves of this bush. However, Robert Bruce passed away before any substantial classification could be made. Later Robert Bruce’s brother, Charles, sent a sample of these leaves to a botanical garden in Calcutta to get it classified as tea and named it - Assamica.
