Tea from Assam”, written by Arup Kumar Dutta is an informative story. The story revolves around the tea garden of Assam. 
Pranjol, a youngster from Assam, is Rajvir’s classmate in school in Delhi. Pranjol’s father is the manager of a tea garden in Upper Assam and Pranjol has invited Rajvir to visit his home during the summer vacation. Rajvir visits Assam in a train with Pranjol and he keeps taking pleasures of the scenery. They arrive at Mariani junction and then at the tea garden of Pranjol’s father.
Almost 8 carore cups of tea are drunk every day in the whole world. 
About the origin of the tea, it is said that a Buddhist monk while meditating felt sleepy. To avoid it he cut his eyelids and threw them. Few saplings sprouted out of them. It is said they were tea leaves that banished sleep after boiling and drinking it.
The other undercurrent story lies like this that a king in China was in the habit of drinking water after boiling it. Few twigs fell into his boiling water. After drinking it, his sleep went off. They called it tea. Tea was first drunk in China as far back as 2700 BC. Chai & chini words have their origin in China.
Tea from Assam  is supposed to be the best kind of tea in the whole world. The best yield comes from May to July every year.
