About this tea

Set high in the Himalayas, Darjeeling is regarded as the “Champagne of Tea” due to its one of a kind terroir. Each garden and slope section in Darjeeling carries its own signature terroir, fragrance and flavor characteristics.

The Lingia estate was planted in 1867 at the historic site of the Tamsa Devi Temple on the steep slopes of the Golden Valley that face the highest Himalayan ranges. The constant cool winds of the Himalayas in this expansive mountainous area cause the tea to grow gradually. The slow and steady leaf growth during the spring in Darjeeling concentrates and accentuates remarkable multi-floral and fruity aromas. The Lingia garden is planted with pure China Bushes of the Black China variety which are genetically close to the rose bush. The Lingia garden’s vintage tea bushes are well-known for yielding naturally occurring rose and heady multi-floral notes. This micro-lot is one of the best examples of Lingia character that we’ve seen in a long time. The eagerly anticipated first flush harvest in March-April produces teas with vivacious energy and flavors that capture the essence of spring and this amazing tea region.

Lingia Estate

The Lingia estate was planted in 1867 across from the historic site of Tumsong and the Tamsa Devi Temple on the steep slopes of the Golden Valley that face the highest Himalayan ranges. In the local Lepcha language, Lingia means “the triangle point of 8 peaks," describing the garden’s unique position. The constant cool winds of the expansive mountainous area cause the tea to grow gradually which concentrates and accentuates remarkable multi-floral and fruity aromas.
