This tea comes to us from the Rohini tea garden, located in Kurseong subdivision. The plantation stretches over 144 hectares between 300 and 1,300 metres above sea level. The Rohini tea garden (Kurseong) features Chinese tea plants as well as superb clonal tea plants such as the Bannockburn 157. This extremely rare cultivar is famous for developing a unique and particularly complex aromatic palette.
