Goomtee Tea Estate is a glorious garden located between Jungpana to the East and Castleton to the West. Mr. Henry Lennox, a British pioneer, was the first that planted the garden in 1899. It was taken over by another famous planter Mr. G. W. O’Brien. The ruling Rana family of Nepal purchased it from Mr. O’Brien after World War II. By the mid fifties, the garden management was taken over by Mr. Mahabir Prasad and the Kejriwal family. Due to high demand of organic teas all over the world, the Majhua Division of Goomtee is presently in the 3rd and final year of conversion to Organic farming under the guidance and inspection of IMO/Switzerland, The tea is processed separately in the Goomtee Factory as per ISO 9001 and HACCP standards. Darjeeling Tea from Goomtee is processed in the traditional "Orthodox" way. Bred and harvested on the high altitude of over 4500 ft combined with excellent harvesting methods, this had ensured quality of pure china tea leaf. The withered leaf is removed from the trough and loaded into rolling machines. The leaf is rolled under pressure resulting in release of natural juices that promote oxidation and pigmentation. The leaf is thinly spread in a cool, well ventilated room to slowly ferment. These distinguished teas are being marketed as “Muscatel Valley”, sold along with Goomtee teas.
