Sandip Roy: Darling Darjeeling


  There’s tea and there’s Darjeeling tea. 

First flush. Second flush. Monsoon flush. Autumn flush. Darjeeling is the crown jewel of teas. From the eastern Himalayas. In a hill station built as a sanitarium for the British. Tea was planted by luck here.


And it found its perfect home in India.
