Indian Darjeeling Teas
“Anyone who has used that comforting phrase ‘a nice cup of tea‘ invariably means Indian tea”
– George Orwell
The teas grown in the 87 tea estates on the foothills of the Himalayas in Darjeeling, India, are known to the world as the ‘Champagne of Teas’. Some of these tea bushes are over a century and half old. The Legacy of these Teas still continues as from the total production more than 8 million kg that is 60% of this sought-after tea produced every year is exported, mainly to the UK, Europe and Japan. The tea tots up nearly $80m (£60m) in annual sales. Said to be one of the most luxurious tea and expensive teas of World, Darjeeling tea surely lives up to its name.
Pure Darjeeling Teas Around the World
“In Ireland, you go to someone’s house, and she asks you if you want a cup of tea. You say no, thank you, you’re really just fine. She asks if you’re sure. You say of course you’re sure, really, you don’t need a thing. Except they pronounce it ting. You don’t need a ting. Well, she says then, I was going to get myself some anyway, so it would be no trouble. Ah, you say, well, if you were going to get yourself some, I wouldn’t mind a spot of tea, at that, so long as it’s no trouble and I can give you a hand in the kitchen. Then you go through the whole thing all over again until you both end up in the kitchen drinking tea and chatting.
In America, someone asks you if you want a cup of tea, you say no, and then you don’t get any damned tea. I liked the Irish way better.”
― C.E. Murphy, American Author
