Since our story began in 1706, at Twinings our passion has been to bring you the tastiest teas from the world’s finest tea gardens.
The tea garden of Chamong in the Himalayan foothills first started production as early as 1871. Stretching over 332 hectares of land, Chamong is set into the side of a hill and its altitude ranges from 1,150 metres to 1,850 metres above sea level. Only about 132 hectares of this space is given to tea plantation, while a small area holds a tea factory and a village for workers.
Tea leaves grown this high and plucked this young are simply unique. We love the bright emerald twists and abundance of silvery tips; the amazing intensity of fresh, fragrant flavours in the honey-coloured liquor and the lingering finish. The tea has a lovely sweetness and quality that is characteristic of Chamong Estate.
