Darjeeling embodies the romance of tea, producing premium teas that are light, aromatic and full of flavours. A combination of clonal and China bushes, the tea is sought after by experts and connoisseurs worldwide and is famously known as the 'Champagne of Teas'.
Darjeeling's location, soil and climate are responsible for the unique qualities of its teas. Tea production is a way of life that is shared by an entire community of garden workers and planters. The natives of the region are adept at working on its steep slopes, sometimes even at precarious inclines of 70 degrees. Two leaves and a bud are delicately handpicked in the gardens and treated with precision to achieve the hallmark Darjeeling quality.
Goodricke's gardens in Darjeeling enjoy a legendary fame and are considered the jewels of the Group's crown.
