Avongrove Tea Estate is located in the Rungbong Valley of the Darjeeling region of India The beautiful Avongrove Tea Estate overlooks the Balasun River meandering along its course below. The tea plants are grown at an altitude 2200 feet above mean sea level. This high-elevation estate goes up to 5700 feet. Approximately 184.79 hectare of land is under tea, and there are 500 workers who live on the estate to maintain optimal plucking rounds. Literally the word "avongrove" translates as "nest of birds". Avongrove is certified as an organic tea estate under USA (USA), JAS (Japan), NOP & NPOP (India & the EU). The factory was built in 1998 and produces 60,000 to 70,000 kg of tea a year. The estate has a perennial source of water and almost the entire area under tea can be irrigated. Approximately 60% of the area under tea has chinary and chinary clonal bushes. Of the 40% that remains, about 20% are hybrid bushes and a very small percentage are pure Assam tea. Avongrove offers a range of specialty Darjeeling tea. For example, the peony rosette and florette, the latter of which expands when allowed to gently brew in a tall container, revealing a flower when the hot water makes the outer leaves unfurl. One woman, working an entire day, can make only six of them. Learn more about the Avongrove Tea Estate at the following link: http://www.avongrovetea.com/
