PASHUPATI HIMALAYAN TEA
Darjeeling, where the breath of the Himalayas surrounds the traveler and the deep green valleys sing all around. Darjeeling is where the world’s most fabled tea is born. A tea that echoes mystery and magic in every sip.
Orthodox tea refers to loose-leaf tea that is produced using traditional (or orthodox) methods of tea production, which involve plucking, withering, rolling, oxidation/fermentation and drying.
CTC or Crush-Tear-Curl production is a very different process. All five steps of Orthodox processing are performed, but much more rapidly and in a limited fashion. CTC was invented specifically for the black tea industry, in an effort to save time (a single batch of tea otherwise can take over a day to produce) and money.
