Darjeeling Nagri Farm Estate
CharacterA light green to yellow brew with woody muscatel notes and the hint of apple this aromatic cup has a mild and highly fragrant in flavour and a pleasant aftertaste.
During the Sikkim-Nepal war the Gorkha Army established a fort on the land that would later become Nagri Farm due to it's amazing views across the region. In 1857 Mr Greenhill, a British entrepreneur, established a dairy farm on the site and gave it the name Nagri Farm using the former military fort barracks as milking sheds and quarters. In 1883, seeing the popularity of teas grown in the region, Mr Greenhill changed the direction of Nagri Farm by planting hybrid tea plants produced using Assam and Chinese tea plants smuggled out of China. After a three year transformation process beginning in 2001 the estates owners achieved a 100% bio-organic certification which they have maintained ever since.
