  FYI
Tea is a continuous crop. It takes three years to grow from a cutting to a tea bush that will produce harvestable leaves. The bush will then produce leaves each day for another 50 years therefore each Tea Estate absorbs more CO2 than it emits.

As you know, Darjeeling is to premium tea what Champagne is to fine wines. The region is located high in the Himalayas at an average altitude of 2143m above sea level and produces light liquoring teas with a regional character known as muscatel. Estates in the neighbouring regions of Nepal and Sikkim produce teas that are similar in character but usually slightly stronger in the cup.

Kenya Estates don't use pesticides and herbicides, because pests typically damage tea crops aren't found at their high altitudes. Instead, the estates use Nitrogen as a natural fertilizer making them almost organic by default. As a further way of improving yield, every 25 years, fields are left fallow for 2 years as and replanted.

Now, almost all tea Estates in Sri Lanka now pack their tea in paper sacks. Switching over from the centuries old tea chest to the paper sack has helped reduce deforestation.


Shelf life of nitrogen-flushed and vacuum sealed packs: 20-22 years.
