From Leaf to Cup

Experience first hand the journey from leaf to cup. We will visit the tea gardens of Darjeeling and learn about the different seasons, when to harvest and how to pick the tea. We will discuss the terroir - the environmental conditions, from altitude to soil type, which gives the various types of tea many of their distinctive aspects.

From here we will go to the tea factories and learn the different processing steps for different types of tea. We will gain an understanding of the different types of machinery used throughout all the stages of the manufacturing process.

Whilst here you will taste and experience tea like never before, and fully understand what makes this incredible industry and world-changing beverage a way of life for so many.
