Energizing ingredients which mixed with the intense Assam black tea will lift your spirits and recharge your batteries in a sip! The base chosen for Babingtons Karha Chai is an Assam tea. Produced with the larger an thicker leaves of the Assamica variety of the Camelia Sinensis - the tea plant-, it is appreciated worldwide for its malty, full bodied flavour. Assam is an Indian region situated in the north east of India, at sea level and is the world’s largest tea growing region. The tea plantations lye north and south of the mighty Brahmaputra river which runs from east to west before flowing in to the Gange. A region in which rainfalls are very frequent all year round, creating the perfect environment for the Camelia Assamica to grow and thrive. Is is said that Robert Bruce, a Scottish adventurer, discovered the Assamica variety growing “wild” in this region in 1823. A great relief for the English, who at the time where in great demand of black tea.
