We have imported single estate teas from this high-altitude Ghoom District garden for over a dozen years. This fragrant First Flush is like a delicate Pinot Noir, subtle and complex with delicious notes appearing throughout the cup. Great for afternoon tea.
Established in the year 1913, Poobong Tea Estate is located at Ghoom Darjeeling, and the teas grow between altitudes of 3000 ft to 5500 ft. The word Poobong means "valley of bamboos" - a reference to an exotic setting where the tea itself grows.
With an estimated area of 500 acres under cultivation, this tea estate produces approximately 70,000 kgs of tea annually. Located in a very picturesque setting, Poobong produces excellent classic Darjeeling black teas from its quality china bushes.
