Strolling around the tea gardens of Darjeeling with a factory owner I came to know that there are many things related with Darjeeling blends. We common people are really ignorant about these facts. There are not only different kinds of Darjeeling teas, they also have diverse flavors and grades and all these are dependent on certain factors. Darjeeling Tea and Its Different Factors
- Darjeeling tea is of varied types – black, green, white and oolong blends. Now, the quality of each variety depends on the way of harvesting, quality of soil, climatic condition and workforce.
- Similarly, flavors of this beverage are determined by the season of its harvest.
- Again, within every flavor and type of this tea, there are grades which depend on leaf size.
- There is another factor that is also significant in the production of Darjeeling tea. It is the elevation or the altitude of the land it is cultivated in.
