Lingia is one of the premiere Darjeeling tea estates of India. Some of the reasons for this are as follows:
1. 90% of the bushes which provide the green leaf to the factory are from the China genus, which provides a distinctive character when grown in the Darjeeling area. The balance 10% of the green leaf is the Assam genus which provides tea of a slightly more full bodied character and in the right proportion with China genus tea produces outstanding specialty teas.
2. The altitude of this estate is very high creating conditions for excellent quality.
