Darjeeling is a well-known tea region in West Bengal, India. Around 2000m up in the Himalayas, the mountainous area has a cool climate where luscious, leafy green slopes filled with bamboo plants, pine forests, rhododendron and orange orchards thrive alongside the rolling hills of neat rows of tea bushes. The region predominantly produces black
teas in two distinct "flushes". To find out more about the differences between the first flush and the second flush, head to our Journal.
