History- The Castleton Estate actually has a castle, however no one is really sure of its origin. Orientally planted in 1885 by an Englishman , it passed through the hands of Calcutta royalty. Planted with mainly Chinese Tea bushes, they employ over 665 members of staff and was the first to be awarded the ISO 9000 Certificate in September 1994. The special nature of these teas come from the topography, soil profile and the tea bushes which have been planted.
