The origins of Jungpana Tea Garden Black Tea


This spectacular First Flush Darjeeling black tea is painstakingly crafted in the extraordinary remote tea garden, Jungpana. The garden is nestled in the rugged, mountainous region of Kurseong in the foothills of the Himalayas.

The brew elegantly expands before ending on a delicately fruity and sweet note. This exquisite First Flush is full of refreshing spring flavours and is the perfect choice for lovers of Darjeeling tea.


Spectacular organic tea gardens in Darjeeling


Jungpana, which name stems from the Tibetan term for 'sweet young girl', is one of the most spectacular organic tea gardens in Darjeeling. The Jungpana garden is tucked away on a rugged mountainside at altitudes ranging from 3,000 to 4,500ft.

Surrounded by pine forests on the upper reaches to the north, and swiftly gurgling mountain streams to the south, east and west and skirted by dense vegetation, the tea garden is almost impregnable, cocooned by Mother Nature for safe keeping.

No wonder that Jungpana is endearingly referred to as 'An Island in the Mountains'. The environment boasts of a large species of flora, that attract birds and butterflies, rarely seen elsewhere. The Himalayan bear - attracted by the damp and mossy pine forests, as well as leopards and deer, car also be spotted in the ferny undergrowth, on the periphery of the estate.


If you love this Indian Black Loose Leaf Tea


The Darjeeling Spring First Flush collection is one of the most anticipated releases of the year for tea connoisseurs. Some exceptional examples of our Darjeeling First Flush collection are our Glenburn White Moonshine, a stunningly rare white tea, a sublimely floral first flush from one of India's best loved estates.

Ingredients


Pure Darjeeling Tea

Tasting notes


The tea imparts a fresh and fruity aroma, and offers a golden yellow infusion. A delightfully delicate cup with layers of crips and muscatel flavours with fruity and sweet notes.

Region


Darjeeling is the northernmost district in West Bengal, Eastern India. Nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas, it is bordered by Nepal in the West, Sikkim state to the North, and Bangladesh on the South-eastern boundary. The eponymous city, 2,100m above sea level, is located on a long, narrow mountain ridge of the Lesser Himalayas.

Learn more about the Jungpana Tea Garden climate


The unique climatic conditions of rain, sunshine, cloud cover, mist and dew, that all Darjeeling tea estates enjoy, the extraordinary setting that surrounds the garden, has contributed largely to Jungpana teas' revered reputation. Drawing abundantly from the encircling water flow and enriched in mineral wealth, the Jungpana soil is especially alluvial and creates perfect conditions for the growth of unique, aromatic and smoothly succulent teas.
