Thurbo has flourished in the idyllic Mirik Valley in Darjeeling since 1872. Strewn across the almost 450 hectares of growing area, the combination of premium China and Assam hybrids with the indigenous varietal, results in a remarkable tea with unique character. Coupled with the typical climate of a hilly area - cooler temperature and diffused sunlight - the result is truly unparalleled.
