History of Bannockburn Tea Estate

This tea garden is one of the first few tea estate that was founded during the early stages of tea plantation development in the Darjeeling subdivision. This happened in and around the 1850s.

The similarity of the terrain and conditions reminded the early Scot planter of their homeland and which found its ways by way of naming this tea estate as Bannockburn Tea Estate.
