Description

Overlooking the snow-capped peaks of the famous Kanchenjunga mountain, the Puttabong plantation (literally meaning “house of green leaves”) is located north-east of the city of Darjeeling and extends for over 20 km right up to the border with Sikkim.

Planted in 1852, this garden of 436 hectares lies at altitudes that vary between 450 and 1,900 metres, and is known for being the oldest in the region. It also has one of the best reputations, due in particular to its Darjeelings that have been specially developed to suit the agro-climatic conditions of the area. The Puttabong plantation is exemplary from an ecological point of view, and has used sustainable integrated farming methods for many years now, ensuring its teas are healthy and respect the environment.

A highly complex tea revealing notes of rose, mango, vanilla and camphor against an elegant, velvety texture.This tea is grown organically and certified by Ecocert, an accredited independent certification body.
