The Makaibari tea factory was the first of its kind when it was established in 1859 by G.C Banerjee.
Today Rajah Banerjee continues this proud family tradition in the fourth generation. The estate was certified organic already in 1988.
The name means 'cornfield' (makai bari), a reference to its previous use - now transformed into a beautiful tea garden.
This organic Second Flush Darjeeling is picked in July and has a darker colour and more body than the Fist Flush teas.
The typical muscatel aroma makes this remarkable Darjeeling a great experience and an excellent afternoon tea.
