Over the past years, a number of samples of Darjeeling teas have arrived, been tried, and been written about (in articles posted on a blog now gone and replaced with this site). Your ever humble, knowledgeable, and totally honest little teapot (me) wanted to review some of those experiences with you along with some info on the various gardens. TOOOT!
The list of gardens in our guide is more expansive than most you will see. We include former names and gardens no longer operating so you will get a fuller picture. All of these gardens now operating bear the official seal that shows they are true Darjeeling teas.
Official seal of tea gardens that meet the standards for geographical location to be true Darjeeling teas.

Tea has thus had a long association with Buddhism, since this area proved to be ideal conditions for gardens and the liquid proved to be perfect to sip as part of their rituals.
