About The Darjeeling Teesta Valley Estate

This garden takes its name from the rough, mountainous waters of the Teesta River. First established in 1841, it finds itself on cold, sunny slopes stretching upwards from 2,500-6,500 feet above sea level.

It is the highest point of the valley, one known for its excellent Tea-growing conditions. Our Darjeeling 1st Flush Teesta Valley stands testament to that fact.

Benefits of Darjeeling Teesta Valley First Flush Tea 2020

Research suggests that this beverage might, although not yet proven outright, reduce the risk of developing dementia and Alzheimer's disease. Evidence exists in a study conducted by the University of Singapore and published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

The project saw some 2,500 participants aged 55 or over undergo cognitive measuring. Two years later, scientists remeasured every volunteer involved.

The results established that participants who drank two or three cups of Black Tea a day had a 55% lower chance of suffering from cognitive decline. Those who drank six to ten cups a day, meanwhile, had up to a 63% lower chance, see our benefits of black tea article.
