In the beautiful northeastern hills of India lies Darjeeling. And it is there that the true aristocrat of teas is grown. It is there that tea lover and world traveller Dheera Sujan indulged herself on a personal tour of the whole complicated business of tea production. Dheera visits the Castleton Tea Factory in Darjeeling, which provides a rare insight into an ancient Eastern tradition.
