Indian Tea

India is the second largest producer of tea in the world after China, and the world's largest tea-drinking nation. Popular Indian teas include rich and hearty Assam, aromatic and floral Darjeeling, and smooth, clean Nilgiri.

Each of these Indian varieties is named for the unique region where it is harvested, ranging from high arid mountains to lush tropical jungles. Our Indian tea leaves are sourced from the finest estates.
