Step into the enchanting world of Darjeeling tea gardens! Nestled in the lap of the mighty Himalayas, these picturesque plantations are a treat for all your senses.
Darjeeling is home to some of the finest tea in the world due its unique terroir. The Darjeeling tea has gained a reputation as the "Champagne of Teas" due to its delicate muscatel flavor and aroma. The perfect unison of the well drained fertile organic soils, the cool air and dry winters in rhythm with the limited direct sunlight, creates a beautiful symphony of taste that is the Darjeeling tea.
The history of Darjeeling tea dates back to the mid-19th century when the British discovered this tiny hamlet and started cultivating tea on the lush green slopes. Ever since then, Darjeeling has given the world the most delightful brews. Although famous for its black tea, some of the estates also offer green, white and oolong tea.
The Tea Board of India monitors around 87 tea estates spread across a total area of 17,500 hectares of land. Amongst these, Goodricke is the proud owner of some of the world’s famous tea gardens in Darjeeling - Thurbo, Badamtam, Barnesbeg, Castelton and Margarets’s Hope.
