The Balasun Tea Estate stands as a testament to the rich history and dedication to quality that defines Darjeeling tea. Nestled amidst picturesque landscapes near Sonada, this estate boasts an ideal combination of altitude, climate, and natural beauty that contributes to its renowned tea production. Established in 1871 by M/s Davenport & Company Ltd., the plantation initially carried the name Nahore Balasun, derived from the Lepcha dialect. Over time, it came to be known simply as Balasun, named after the river that gracefully meanders through its grounds. Jay Shree Tea and Industries took ownership of the estate in 2005 and embarked on a journey of rejuvenation and modernisation. Through significant investments in infrastructure, technology, and employee welfare, the management has propelled Balasun Tea Estate to new heights of excellence. Balasun Tea Estate's commitment to quality and sustainability is evident through its various certifications, including Fair Trade certification from FLO-CERT, HACCP certification by TUV-NORD, UTZ certification by IMO, and SAN/Rainforest Alliance certification from IMO.
