Brewing instructions


The 2023 Jungpana Darjeeling First Flush Tea is produced from the illustrious Jungpana Tea Estate, located in the foothills of the Himalayas. This estate has an altitude between 3,000 to 4,500ft and is South facing near the town of Darjeeling.

The mountain was given its name by a tragic story which dates back centuries ago; when an English hunter accompanied by his servant named Jung Bahadur was attacked by a leopard and in trying to save him, he was mortally wounded.

He cried out for water pana before he died at a nearby stream and consequently earned the mountain its name – Jungpana. Before tea was planted in this region, most of these hills were covered in dense forests.

The 2023 Jungpana Darjeeling First Flush Tea is a remarkable ode to this legendary tea estate, encapsulating the history and legacy of the region in every cup. With its distinctive aroma, this exquisite example brings you the unique taste of Darjeeling First Flush Tea like no other.

History of Jungpana Tea Estate

Jungpana Tea Estate was established in 1899 by the adventurous British tea planter, Henry Montgomery Lennox. He was responsible for planting the very first tea saplings. Following Lennox, another British planter, G.W.O’ Brien, took over and oversaw the establishment of the tea factory. For several important years, he was instrumental in steering the growth of Jungpana.

In the aftermath of World War II, Mr O'Brien transferred ownership of the tea estate to Nepal's ruling Rana family, specifically King Tribhuwan Bir Bikram Shah. Mayfair Group, a top hospitality firm in Eastern India, has just taken over a Tea Estate.

With an unwavering focus on design and aesthetics, Mayfair is committed to elevating the standards of both tea production and tea tourism. Get ready for a fresh and exciting experience!

Jungpana Tea Estate spans 400 acres with an altitude that ranges from 1,000 to 1,500 metres. Its surroundings are a beautiful combination of pine forests to the north and swiftly gurgling mountain streams to the south, east, and west. They are augmented by dense vegetation and about 7 magical waterfalls. The Tea Estate rests securely amid pristine nature, earning it a nickname of "an Island in the Mountains".
