While most green tea is produced in China and Japan, it is now finding its way to the Darjeeling tea estates of Northern India, in the mountains of Mahabharat range, also known as the Lesser Himalayan Range.

Being situated 2000 meters above sea level, this area provides excellent growing conditions for tea, with plenty of sunshine and rainfall. Tea grown in this region comes from the small-leaved Camellia Sinensis plant, and is considered the best of Indian teas.
