Darjeeling tea, is a rare, coveted and exotically flavoured tea, which is grown only in Darjeeling, situated at the foothills of the Himalayas in India and cannot be grown, manufactured or replicated anywhere else in the world. The unique agro-climatic condition of the region contributes to its distinctive flavour and aroma. However, according to the official sources, each year, around 10 million kg of teas are grown in 87 tea gardens spread over 17,500 hectares of land but over 40 million Kg of teas are sold worldwide as Darjeeling.
It is to be noted that in order to protect this authenticity, Tea Board of India (Regulatory body of Government of India) has patented Darjeeling tea with the Darjeeling logo as the seal of authenticity and awards licenses to companies that sell 100% Pure Darjeeling Tea and support trade through fair and proper channel. We are delighted to be one of the very few (if not the only) Australian Companies to be awarded this licence (Vide. no- DJ/HOOL/064/22082017/AUS) and are authorised to use the official "Darjeeling" Tea logo and the word "Darjeeling" on our products.
To further maintain the quality and authenticity of our products, our Pure & Premium Organic Darjeeling Teas, are packed at source (in India), at a high quality FSSC 22000 Certified packaging centre. The FSSC 22000 certificate is a global certification that proves that the organizations food safety management system is in compliance with the Scheme requirements. Globally, there are just 21019 (as on Sep 2019) organisations spread across 154 countries that has been issued this highly sought after certification.
Did you know, women, who form majority of the workforce in this tea producing ecosystem, play a significant role in the sustainability of the tea industry. This ethically sourced, carefully crafted tea is more of an art. The sight of a mother (a tea-picker) holding a 'tea-leaf' while at the same time carrying her child in her pouch is a sight- that is quite common. And that, in a way exemplifies the nature/nurture bond. Thus, through the 'mother and child' image on our products, we pay our respect to all those women working in the tea gardens while nurturing both their human child as well as the industry. It is in their nature to nurture and that help produce the best tea (both in terms of flavour and aroma) in the world.
