Provenance: Ambootia Tea Garden, Himalayas, Darjeeling
The Ambootia tea garden resides in the mist laden Himalayas of Darjeeling - an area famed for a flavour of its teas. The garden is the flagship tea garden of a collective that were taken over at a time of ailing fortune in the Darjeeling tea industry. This garden was the first one to be converted from conventional to bio-dynamic and was selected by FAO as a model farm for organic, bio-dynamic farming system. The biodynamic tea and organic practices adopted here have truly infused the bushes with vitality and enhanced the quality of the leaf. These practices have prevented soil erosion and improved soil fertility. Ambootia is also committed to supporting the Save Our Soils Fund substantially over the next few years with financial contributions as well as by sharing their experiences and insights to help further sustainable soil management practices on a global scale.
