Information for tea connoisseurs

Unlike most Indian teas, Darjeeling tea is normally made from the small-leaved Chinese variety of Camellia Sinensis, rather than the large-leaved Assam plant, Camellia Sinensis Assamica. Tea planting in the Indian district of Darjeeling was introduced in 1841 by Arthur Campbell, a civil surgeon of the Indian Medical Service. Campbell was transferred to Darjeeling in 1839 from Kathmandu, Nepal. In 1841, he brought seeds of the Chinese tea plant, Camellia Sinensis from Kumaun and began to experiment with tea planting in Darjeeling. The British government also established tea nurseries during that period. Commercial development began during the 1850s.
