Orthodox Teas and Herbal Infusions from the Himalayas
“Pour me a Palampore”
In the mid eighteenth century the British introduced Tea, one of their most prized traditions, into India. Along with toy trains and beautiful hill stations, the tea estates added a rare and singular charm to the Himalayan landscape.
In the year 1852, tea plantation was first brought to Kangra Valley. A distinctly flavourful line of exquisite teas began to be produced in the Palampur area of the Valley, which is in modern day Himachal Pradesh. This incredible heritage has been painstakingly nurtured and preserved through the years by inhabitants of the region and now himalayan people are presenting this delectable gift to the world.
