Gayabaree & Millikthong Estate

Sprawling over an area of 812.85 hectare and situated in the Mirik Valley, Gyabaree & Millikthong Tea Estate is one of the biggest Tea Estate in Darjeeling district with an annual production of 2,50,000 kg.

Gyabaree & Millikthong Tea Estate is a Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Point (HACCP) & certified by RAINFOREST ALLIANCE, UTZ and ETP.

We take special care during the storage and transportation of the harvested green leaves as they are extremely tender and can easily be damaged by improper handling, bacteria and heat.

A final prepack backing is also done to remove excess moisture present in the tea leaves which significantly enhances shelf life and encourages the tea flavour to mature over a period of time as in the case of fine wines.

Moreover, in order to maintain the final product as "authentic" as possible, we still use the original old machines which cost more to run but preserves the original Darjeeling character better.

Why Gyabaree & Millikthong is renowned for its fine quality teas?
