List of Tea Gardens in Darjeeling

Tea Gardens in Darjeeling

It has to be noted that when we talk about Darjeeling tea, we refer to the tea produced in the hilly area of Darjeeling district. The production in the plains is known as Duars tea and it has neither the taste nor the muscatel flavor associated with Darjeeling tea. In fact, to grow this variety of tea, the gardens must be located at an altitude ranging from six hundred to two thousand meters and the area must have fifty to sixty inches of rainfall over the years. The hills in Darjeeling meet all these conditions.

Moreover, cool and moist climate, sloppy terrain and typical hilly soil of the district are conductive to the growth of the best tea in the world.  Yet, it may sound strange, but tea plantations are mainly located in the Darjeeling and Kurseong subdivision of the district. That is because from the very beginning most of the land available in Kalimpong was already under cultivation. Rest of the land now belongs to the Forest Department and is maintained as reserved forest. 

In Darjeeling, tea plantations started with the experimental production of Dr A. Campbell near his residence at Beechwood. The Tukvar Tea estate located at Tukvar is said to be the first one to start commercial production.  The plantation is easily accessible from Darjeeling town through the Darjeeling-Rangeet Valley Passenger Cable Car or simply the ropeway. The Happy Valley Tea Estate was established next. It is located at a distance of 3 Km from Chowk Bazar and can easily be accessed from Lebong Cart Road by car or on foot.

Glenburn is another famous tea garden in this area. It takes around one hour to drive down to this garden. Apart from producing world class tea, this garden also runs a boutique hotel. With two rivers running through the estate and different species of birds and reptiles making it their home, it is indeed, a paradise for nature lovers. Other than the above, Rangaroon Tea Estate, Rungneet Tea Estate, Pandam Tea Estate, Tumsong Tea Estate, and Rungmook & Cedar Tea Estate are also located in the vicinity of Darjeeling town.
