Assam tea is a black tea named after the region of its production, Assam, in India. This tea, most of which is grown at or near sea level, is known for its body, briskness, malty flavour, and strong, bright colour. Packed full of antioxidants, Assam tea not only wins on taste but also on health benefits. It is known for benefits such as decreasing the risk of heart attacks and strokes, and improve blood circulation. Assam tea may help enhance the immune system and lessen the risk for cell damage which in turn may lead to cancer. The other thing it is excellent for is relieving tension and nerves, as well as helping to decrease the risk of Alzheimers disease. Other benefits lie in oral health, by strengthening teeth and fighting cavities.
