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 has its own signature micro-climate which brings forth a unique fragrance and flavor characteristics.

The Lingia garden is primarily planted with pure China Bushes of the Black China variety which are genetically close to the fragrant tea rose bush. The garden’s vintage tea bushes are known to yield naturally occurring rose and heady jasmine multi-floral notes. The second flush is rich, ripe and floral with lush notes of muscatel and fermented fruits.

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.
