BEYOND A CUP OF TWG TEA

From Tea Leaves to Tea Cup

The secret of a fine cup of Darjeeling tea is the process behind it; from climate and soil conditions, organic cultivation and harvesting techniques, to sustainable farming practices and tea processing methods. One of the most labour-intensive processes in the world, these Darjeeling teas are carefully picked by hand, showcasing an exquisite quality of craftsmanship with a very high percentage of downy silver tips. It takes approximately 20,000 to 22,000 tender shoots of newly grown tea plants to produce 1kg of Darjeeling tea.

 

At the TWG Tea Chiya Bari tea estate, tea plants are cultivated sustainably using only natural fertilisers and pesticides. To protect the tea bushes from pests, tea planters create natural spray from wild weeds, lemongrass and neem seeds, allowing it to grow and flourish the way Mother Nature intended. It is the process of how the teas are grown, picked, processed and served that contributes to an extraordinary cup of TWG Tea.

 

Beyond a Fine Cup of Darjeeling Tea

Behind a fine cup of Darjeeling tea is a dedicated and skilled workforce working to produce the marvellous teas in the TWG Tea collection. TWG Tea prioritise caring for the farmers and communities we source from, and understand the history and customs of the people who call the tea plantation their home.

On our partner tea estate in Darjeeling, primary schools offer education to children and community centres play host to social activities. An onsite hospital and hospice provide medical support, and cows are distributed to all members of staff at no cost as a source of milk and additional income for the workers' families.

 

Beyond the remarkable flavours in the teacup, tea is a journey and a discovery of a wonderful heritage and tradition, an experience like no other that will bring people back, time and again, in search of the intangible qualities of TWG Tea.
