Paperback/Language: English

Set against the backdrop of the looming Himalayas and drenching monsoons, this is the story of how Darjeeling developed its tea industry under Imperial British rule and eventually came to produce the world's finest leaves. A fascinating portrait of the region and a story rich in intrigue and empire, full of adventurers and romance, it illuminates the historic, arcane and changing world of this celebrated tea.

It's the story, too, of the measures being taken to counter challenges -  dropping production, a violent struggle for independent statehood, labour unrest and the devastating effect of climate change - and save India's most exclusive and iconic brew that are nothing short of radical.
