A great value first flush Darjeeling FTGFOP 1 from the world renowned Makaibari estate A great Darjeeling tea with a complex range of flavours, clear liquor and beautiful aroma.


The Makaibari tea estate is one of the founding estates in Darjeeling to actively promote and follow organic and bio dynamic practices. Besides being the first tea garden to be certified for organic trade in the world back in 1988, the tea estate is one of the oldest Tea Gardens in Darjeeling. It was originally established in 1859 by the descendants of the current Banerjee family and covers more than 1500 acres of hills, valleys and forests. Much of the tea gardens are at altitude 4500 feet above sea level. The current owner ensures the estate follows many concepts from permaculture and unlike many modern tea estates in India, Makaibari is far from being a monoculture, single crop estate with 70% of its entire area under forest cover providing significant bio-diversity.
