Camellia sinensis var. assamica
Assam black tea - tasty! and LOADED with caffeine! I've had black tea in China before, and it was "eh". I picked up some "Irish Black Tea" at Fresh and Easy last week, and mmmm, it is an awesome pick-me-up at 4am for Bangalore calls. Grown mostly in India, I am not sure where F&E got the "Irish" part from, but that's fine. It has usurped oolong as my favorite tea. Combine it with a little stevia, and it might progress from staple to addictive.
