The Mim Tea Estate is in the Darjeeling area of Northern India. The name comes from the fact that the estate was managed by a British lady and the locals called it 'Mem ko Kaman' or 'Garden of the British lady' and Mim is derived from Mem.
At such high altitudes, the tea bushes grow slowly and so production is limited, and thus these teas attract a higher value. Plucked during June when the 2nd flush growing season is at its peak, this Mim TGFOP1 (Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe 1) tea offers excellent body with the classic muscatel flavour that tastes simply wonderful.
