About This Tea

Pussimbing consistently produces some of the most prestigious organic teas in Darjeeling each year from its steep and sloping gardens. Pussimbing has been under certified organic management practices since 1994. The tea gardens have biodiversity and rich soil structures that nourish exquisite, bold and aromatic teas. Some vintages have rich muscatel and ripeness and others exude a characteristic minty and spicy note found in their second flush lots. Legend remarks that a monk named Pasang found abundant water springs and tea here. In the local Lepcha language, Pussimbing means "the source of water". The place where the monk discovered the spring on Pussimbing was called Mingoo (“valley hidden in the fog”). Mingoo is nowadays, one of the famous garden divisions on the Pussimbing Estate. The tea gardens of Pussimbing Estate are in the Tiger Hill region of Darjeeling which has a panoramic view of Mount Everest and Mount Kanchenjunga. The high mountain energy and character shine in this tea.
