Assam tea is grown in the low lying areas of Assam, where floodplains offer nutrient rich soil. The climate ranges from cool and arid in the winter to hot and rainy during the monsoon season. With plenty of rainfall and sunlight during the long growing season, tea bushes grow fast and thick in Assam, allowing for harvests to occur nearly all year round. Combined with the efficient production of the colonial plantation system, Assam quickly became the backbone of the British tea industry. Though Assam teas of the first and second “flush” are typically processed as premium teas, the bulk of Assam production occurs during the summer months, when the broad leaves of the assamica variety grow rapidly. The robust leaves are well suited to crafting black teas.
