Tea Education

Jungpana is an Organic Tea Estate in Darjeeling, India.  Under the guidance of Rajah Banerjee, our tea mentor, scion of the illustrious Makaibari family, Jungpana has produced a small reserve batch of elegant, wiry, needle-like extraordinary Silver Tips for us.  The tea is elegant and refreshing.  Be generous with the leaf and allow it to steep a sufficient length of time to extract the full flavor.  
The name Jungpana is filled with folklore:  A British planter was mauled by a leopard whilst planting the first saplings in 1898.  His trusted ranger, Jung Bahadur Rai, fought the leopard away.  Wounded, the British planter whispered for water or “pana”.  The legend of Jungpana was thus born - in honor of the brave Gorkha who heroically wrested his master from the jaws of a ferocious carnivore.
