HISTORY OF TEA IN KANGRA

Kangra is located in the northern part of India, the state of Himachal Pradesh. It is known as the “valley of gods” and is famous for its distinct flavoured tea. This region has been growing tea as early as 1949. Although, in 1849, Dr. Jameson conducted a feasibility survey of the valley of Kangra and concluded it suitable for tea cultivation. He brought Chinese tea plants from the nurseries at Almora and Dehradun and planted them in Government gardens at Kangra and Bhawama.

TYPE OF TEA IN KANGRA

The region grows both black and green tea varieties, Pekoe, Pekoe Suchong, Coarse teas and Fannings in black while Hyson, Young Hyson and Coarse grades are popular ones in green tea. The Kangra green tea is the best in India because of its unique profile - a citrusy, yet nutty flavour with just a little bit of bitterness.
