The Dharmsala Tea Company owns three tea gardens, Hoodle, Towa, and Mann Tea Estates, in India’s northern region of Kangra - and has been handcrafting premium teas there since 1882. Today the company also makes green, white, and hand-rolled oolong teas, spice-flavored teas and teas mingled with rose petals and saffron.
With tea gardens set in the Himalayas at an altitude of 4,000 to 6,500 ft., the quality and flavor of the different teas are unique. Dharmsala also creates innovative blends for individual customers.
“We grow our own roses here in the Himalayas, and use the best Kashmiri saffron for our saffron teas,” explains Anirudh Suri. “We have also launched a consumer facing website and are selling teas directly to consumers across the world.” The company plans to build a cafe in Dharmsala, set in the Dholadhar mountain range, overlooking the tea estates.
