Glenburn Tea Estate, Darjeeling
A place where the magnificent peaks of the 3rd highest mountain in the world, Mount Kanchenjunga ascend over the tea bushes of Glenburn, - a name that literally means what this 750 hectare estate is - A River Valley.
Here in hills of Darjeeling, tea rises out of the magical landscape imbibing the essence of the eternal Himalayas. In the peace and tranquility of Glenburn a flourishing community of people and tea bushes thrive together as they have done for the past 150 years.
