When British planters first ventured into the Assam Valley in the 1850’s and 1860’s with the view of establishing tea plantations, they faced many difficulties; especially with the wildlife. They had to contend with marauding elephants, king cobras and troops of monkeys, (the monkey’s were more of a nuisance than a threat as they would quickly steal anything left unattended). Perhaps the most feared animal was the mature Bengal Tiger, an animal that could kill with one swipe of its powerful paws and carry away young people.
Historical accounts tell of the planters boiling water and adding locally grown fruits and spices along with the tea to ward off pangs of hunger and bouts of thirst. The fruit would give them the vitamin C their body required; the cinnamon had a curative affect on their digestive system... and the tea - well! what citizen of England could survive without tea! Step back in time and relive a moment or two with the Tea Planters of the British Empire as the faced another day in the ‘Ulu’ with a cup of ‘Royal Bengal Tiger Tea’
