bags of teaOn my recent visit to Darjeeling, following the Indian Tea Forum, Dharlene Marie Fahl and I were taken by Rishi Saria on a delightful tea garden visit to the Rohini and Gopaldhara estates.  Gopaldhara teas are grown at more than 6ooo feet above sea level in a place where others said it was foolish to try to propagate tea bushes commercially.  In fact, it is one of the highest tea plantations in Darjeeling.
