Assam is located in a biodiversity-rich region of East India- a very special place for the teas grown here. These teas are referred to simply as "Assam" tea. They are rich, full-bodied, bright tea liquor. The Assam loose leaf tea variety is of premium quality and is a favourable choice for those who favour a bright, strong cup of tea. Some of the popular tea gardens from this region are Halmari Tea Estate, and Nonoi Tea Estate.
