History- Using original China tea bushes, the Gielle Estate took 15 years to plant and is now one of Darjeeling's most prized Tea Estates due to its locational advantage of the sweet water from the steam, the cold misty, sunny slopes and crisp winds of the Kanchenjunga- where the legend of the pure Darjeeling flavours were conceived.
