There exists an enchanting annual ritual of tea plucking during the summer solstice in a sprawling estate in Darjeeling
Tomorrow is the summer solstice, a red-letter day in Darjeeling’s Makaibari tea garden. At night, trained tea workers will climb steep hills to pluck tea. These leaves will go into making the garden’s summer solstice specials, which include a muscatel and an oolong.
