This unique Pine smoked 2019 Darjeeling comes from Niroula’s Tea Farm, located at Poobong, Darjeeling, a new micro tea processing unit of organic Darjeeling tea initiated to deliver quality and healthy orthodox tea to tea lovers.
Delicately fruity note of Darjeeling mixed with the smoke of pine oak is a perfect partnership. Produces a bright amber liquor with a smoky aroma.
Very tenderly plucked leaves have been withered naturally before a light rolling was done. Soon after rolling this wonderful tea was passed into compact pine smoke chamber. The SMOKE is just perfect which gives a very pleasing flavour on the tongue. This tea is recommended to all Darjeeling Tea Lovers.
Niroula’s Tea Farm
Situated in the mystical hills of Himalayas, located at around 10km from Ghoom railway station, surrounded by a beautiful tea garden in the south and a magnificent reserve forest area with diverse flora and fauna towards the north.
Niroulla’s Tea Farm is presently a micro tea processing unit of organically grown Darjeeling tea initiated to deliver quality and healthy orthodox tea to tea lovers looking for the right blend of taste and health.
Niroulla’s Tea Farm produces premium high-quality orthodox Darjeeling Tea, which is bio-organically homegrown by a small group of dedicated local farmers of Darjeeling, using a time-testing method to capture the full flavour, original taste and aroma.
In 2000, an ardent tea lover Mr. Bikram Niroula from Chota Pubung Busty, initiated and planted the first Camellia Sinensis in a small area in a bio-organic way as a hobby straight from the heart. His devotion and fascination for high-grade quality tea grew instantly. His small tea farm nurtured carefully hand-grown finest tea crafted with sheer love and joy for pure organic tea. Tea growers were deprived of getting benefit under the terms and conditions of big tea gardens due to the absence of the factory of their own and they were bargained and deprived of the real price of the green tea leaves. His and small farmers relentless pleading and negotiation with major tea gardens players continued for better pricing of tea leaves failed time and again.
In 2014 Bhawesh Niroula, a young dynamic entrepreneur and present owner, realised the importance to cater the finest high-grade quality of Darjeeling tea to the world and his foresightedness saw the potential that this small farm had. Thus, following his father’s footsteps, he realised that the magic of Camellia Sinensis and took Niroulla’s Tea Farm further ahead and changed the scenario of small farmers who had to abide by the terms and conditions of the big tea plantations.
He revolutionised the Darjeeling tea scenario by being the only first “local boy (gorkhali) small farmer” in 200 years to own and open an indigenous mini tea processing unit in Darjeeling.
Ingredients: Darjeeling black tea
Region & Time of Harvest
This tea is harvested in spring in Niroulas Tea Farm, located at Poobong, Darjeeling.
A beautiful light, clean and fresh first flush with slight astringency perfectly balanced by the mild smokiness. A true Darjeeling produced by a small- holder following organic principles. Small- holders like Bhawesh Niroula should be supported, more so than the large estates owned by multitude-national companies where, in many instances, workers are exploited and where organic principles are not followed.
