While I was in India, I conducted this research about top 10 Darjeeling black tea estates. The research has involved Indian seven tea taster, Bangladeshi three tea taster, five top tea companies CEO, ten Indian Darjeeling tea lover, ten Bangladeshi Darjeeling tea lover, ten Indian retail tea shops owner, Ten Bangladeshi retail tea shops owner. I asked them couple of same questions( the whole process took almost two months, because I have my personal career not related with tea) but here I will just put the result of top ten Darjeeling tea estates names. I think people are more interested about the estates name rather then the whole research result. They selected the estates name from their minimum last ten years drinking, tasting, market demand etc. experiences- P.S. The result is based on the whole research process, my personal experience or choice has no effect on it. TOP 10 Darjeeling black tea estates name: 1) Castleton 2) Margaret's Hope 3) Kalej valley 4) Chamong 5) Pussimbing 6) Phoobsering 7) Puttabong 8) Sungma 9) Risheehat 10) Makaibari
I am working on the Assam one right now, if you are interested- I will
post it soon.
