Quality Control

The interpretation of "quality" has changed a lot in the past. It was not long ago that people thought the quality of a product can only be assured by checking only once before delivery. Starting with checks of 100%, the experience showed that this method is very expensive, time-consuming, and ineffective.
At Teesta Valley Exports Limited offering the right quality at the right price is the result of long experience ranging over 150 years, ever since the first garden of the group was planted in 1841. The group has a unique heritage and a privileged status to live up to, being the originator of pure Darjeeling tea with its unique flavour, grown in two of the best located gardens in the Himalayan hills facing the majestic Kanchenjungha. One of these gardens, Teesta Valley Tea Estate, was the first to win the tea industry's Gold Medal For Excellence of Produce in 1884.
Quality Assurance
The quality assurance derives essentially from three factors:
• The natural locational advantage of the gardens is the climate and soil.
• Improved strains and clones, coupled with well-established horticultural practices, complying with the HACCP & GMP guidelines.
• The induction of new and innovative processing technology. 
• Selection by our own professional tea taster
• Controlled organic cultivation, according to JAS, NPOP, USDA, EEC organic regulations
• Guaranteed pesticide free organic tea
