This fantastic Tea is an organic Darjeeling second flush from the Makaibari Tea Garden. It is one of the oldest gardens having been established in 1859. Located in the Kurseong subdivision, in the Darjeeling District, Makaibari provides work for more than 1,500 people from seven local villages. The fourth-generation owners of Makaibari care deeply about the people who work in their tea gardens and provide schools, libraries, computer training centres and housing. This caring approach is given over to the land as well since 70% of it remains under forest where wildlife is protected.

Darjeeling is located high up in the foothills of the Indian Himalayas where tea was introduced to the area by the British in 1856. This region produces some of the finest teas in the world since the conditions there are perfect: High altitude, well-drained soils, temperatures that range from 8 to 25 C and enough cloud cover to protect the young leaves from drying out or burning.
