Darjeeling tea is an aromatic black tea, grown in West Bengal, India. Darjeeling is grown from the leaves of the Chinese variety of Camellia sinesis var. sinesis. It is known as the champagne of teas for its delicate taste and flavours such as muscatel and is one of the most expensive teas due to its unique taste and limited production.

Its history dates back to 1835, when the Britons established in India and the cultivation of Darjeeling tea is credited to Archibald Campbell, a civil surgeon of the Indian Medical Service who planted the seeds he had bought from Kumaon. Darjeeling

Tea is popular in line with the natural and health and wellness trend in Latin America and the Middle East, which is why ready-to-drink teas have become a refreshing way to rehydrate. The ready-to-drink tea market has witnessed noticeable growth over the last few years, with the global consumption of RTD tea expected to surpass 45 billion litres by 2021. In Asia, tea’s popularity is primarily driven by the benefits on digestion, the heart and skin health.

From iced teas, cold brew teas, sparkling teas to energy drinks, Darjeeling is being formulated into a wide range of RTD drinks. Darjeeling can also be found in the personal and household care sector, from body scrubs to shampoos and conditioners.
