"The Champagne of Teas" Darjeeling Shopping Tip by bradbeaman

Darjeeling Shopping: 5 reviews and 9 photos


What to buy: Darjeeling tea is considered the best in the world and that is why Darjeeling tea is nicknamed “The Champagne of Teas.” Watch out because the amount of tea sold as Darjeeling tea worldwide every year exceeds 40,000 tons, while the annual tea production of Darjeeling itself is only 10,000 tons. One of the measures taken by the Tea Board of India to protect Darjeeling tea was this “Darjeeling" logo.
