Tea Farm

Rungmook Estate

The Rungmook Estate was integrated into the Cedar Estate over 100 years ago and benefits from an ideal climate, high elevation, good drainage, frequent fog, and local water for irrigation. The estates even have their own water hydroelectric power stations that provide resource-saving energy. The estate was converted to demeter (biodynamic) cultivation in 2016.



A wonderfully classic Second Flush Darjeeling. Characteristic malty notes paired with nutmeg aroma and intense sweetness. Wonderful mouthfeel, very rich, full-bodied and viscous. Reminiscences of honey and caramel. A wonderful representative of its kind from 100% organic cultivation.

Black Tea

Black tea is the most oxidised form of tea. In contrast to green tea, the oxidation of the leaves after harvest and withering is not stopped with heat, but rather further facilitated by intensive rolling of the leaves, which breaks open cell walls and exposes the enzymes responsible for oxidation. Over the course of this process the leaves change from green to black and a full-bodied and broad aroma develops. The cup is often orange or red, which is where the Chinese name for this tea (hong cha, meaning "red tea") comes from.

Laboratory Tests

We go to great lengths to identify the finest organic tea farms across the world’s most celebrated terroirs. All our teas are sourced directly from the farmer and, with a few exceptions, are certified organic or come from pesticide-free farms. Each batch of tea for every harvest is tested for pesticides and other pollutants in an independent German lab to ensure they meet our strict quality standards as well as HACCP food safety requirements.

Cultivation & Processing

The Rungmook Estate is located in the northernmost part of Darjeeling near the border with the Ambootia Tea Estate and Nepal. The elevation of 1,246m offers ideal climatic conditions for a rich second flush tea with full notes of muscatel. The exquisite flavour further benefits from the exceptionally natural cultivation methods and production process.

The fresh tea leaves of the summer harvest (second flush) have a high moisture degree of 75% that evaporates during the strictly monitored withering process when air is blown between the leaves. The tea is machine-rolled to open up the leaves, expose the leaf juices, and thus facilitate fermentation. The tea is fermented for a longer period of time than first flush and takes place under constant supervision to ensure the full development of the flavour bouquet, which has a muscatel character. In the last stage the tea is fully dried in an oven for 25 minutes and hand-packed into tea crates.
