There are 87 Darjeeling tea estates in the Himalayans. Recently I read a fascinating article written by Matt Gross from the N.Y. Times. He flew into India then braved the roads of the Himalayas to find the world's best Darjeeling tea. Because of the interest of tea connoisseurs around the world, the most royal of the owners, Rajah, converted some of the tea picker's huts into bungalows for travelers.
The author was able to meet this legendary owner. Makaibari Estates is the world's first to grow this type of tea 100% bio-dynamically.
