This tea has a heady, floral aroma with soft notes of muscatel grapes.
Swaraj Kumar Banerjee (known as Rajah), is a 4th generation tea planter who cares immeasurably about the land and the people who live and work on it, and creates the finest tea imaginable. He recently moved across the border from Darjeeling in West Bengal to the neighbouring region of Sikkim. We followed him as he's the best tea maker we know in India...
The Temi Tea Garden
Although a tea can’t be called Darjeeling if it is not grown in the specific area of West Bengal (like Champagne) the terroir of Sikkim is every bit as good, if not better. The whole state is officially under organic agriculture and the garden of Temi is one of the most unspoiled we have ever encountered.
Rajah is concerned with protecting the unique ecosystem and the rich variety of flora and fauna that still exist in the foothills of the Himalayas. You can taste this rich terroir in Rajah's tea.
