The tea would most likely resemble tea from one of the surrounding regions, although with subtle differences. Other Bangladeshi offerings may be pretty bad though.
You would think that proximity might transfer to quality but such is not the case. Assam and Bangladesh teas are lowland teas, not high mountain like Darjeeling and Nepali. There may be some teas that are good from there but I don't think you would equate them with premium teas of the Darjeeling appellation.
