GLENBURN TEA ESTATE

FLAVOURFUL HISTORY

The Glenburn Tea Estate offers a boutique retreat in the heart of the tea-capital of India, Darjeeling, where you can drink tea till your heart’s content.

For over 150 years some of the finest Darjeeling tea has been grown on a tiny, exclusive little plantation high in the Himalayas, beneath the soaring peaks of the mighty Kanchenjunga Mountains. So if you’re a lover of tea, the Glenburn offers you a unique opportunity to understand the methods of growing and preparing the world’s favorite drink, as well as the intricacies of its taste and its flavorful history. It’s an experience akin to that of a wine connoisseur staying as a guest on a small, highly acclaimed vineyard in France, run by a renowned family of wine-makers.

But tea isn’t the only refreshing aspect of Glenburn. Nature lovers can explore the diverse landscape, flora and fauna. And foodies will be well catered with fine cuisine, prepared from many estate-grown ingredients.
