The Gielle Estate sits high up in the Himalayas and was established in 1850. The name came from the Gielle river that passes through the tea garden meaning the ‘Land Of Sweet Water’ referring to the sweet and floral taste in the cup.

It took fifteen years to plant the estate and is now one of Darjeeling’s most prized tea estates. This is due to the advantages of its location such as the cold misty, sunny slopes and crisp winds of Mt. Kanchenjunga.

Our first flush tea has a lovely fresh and grassy aroma with floral, citrus and aromatic notes and a silky mellowness. Drinking black tea also helps to keep you alert and energised. They have a high level of caffeine which releases slowly into your body and gives you a more natural boost. It also contains antioxidants that help to protect the body.
