History of Lingia Tea Estate
Lingia tea estate is steeped in history, having been the site of two German missionary brothers' endeavour over 150 years ago. This picturesque small patch of land located on Darjeeling town's western edge has grown to become one of the most well-known and beloved plantations today.
This particular plot of land made history, as it was the first time tea began to be cultivated here. The saplings planted laid down a precedent for future generations and became an influential part of local culture.
With a stunning panorama of 8 peaks that make up the triangular shape, “Ling-ge” is believed to be the origin of its name Lingia. This enchanting area was once inhabited by Lepcha tribes who gave it such an awe-inspiring title.
In 2001, the Chamong Group acquired Lingia Tea Estate from Williamson Magor Company Ltd. Now expertly managed by this new team of professionals, tea lovers can enjoy a truly excellent cup!
