Darjeeling Tea, which is widely exported and known is a tea grown in the Darjeeling district, Kalimpong District in West Bengal, India. When properly brewed, it yields a thin-bodied, light-coloured infusion with a floral aroma. The flavour can include a tinge of astringent tannic characteristics and a musky spiciness sometimes described as "muscatel".
Darjeeling tea is normally made from the small-leaved Chinese variety of Camellia Sinensis. After the enactment of Geographical Indications of Goods (Registration & Protection Act, 1999) in 2003, Darjeeling tea became the first Indian product to receive a GI tag, in 2004–05 through the Indian Patent Office.
