Named after The East India Company’s superintendent of Darjeeling, Dr Campbell, the second flush of this light and fragrant Darjeeling black tea has the signature muscatel flavour as well as a fruity and earthy note. Take a moment to savour a cup of one today.

It all began with a love of tea, up high on the misty slopes of the Himalayas. After acquiring territory in Darjeeling after the Nepal war, The East India Company appointed a new superintendent, a doctor by the name of Campbell. A man with decidedly green fingers, he began to plant. And plant. And plant. And do you know, those unique teas became delicate, delicious and very highly prized. And that is how the Campbell Darjeeling tea got its name.


The East India Company acquired territory in the Darjeeling district after the Nepal War. In 1839, Dr. Campbell was appointed Superintendent of the area by the Company, and experimented with planting tea in the grounds of his official residence. The success of the plants led to the establishment of numerous gardens, and the unique ‘muscatel’ flavour of the second flush teas became well-known and highly prized.

Then, as now, the high-altitude plantations above five thousand feet produced the finest qualities. After 1850, the cultivation area was extended and the success of Darjeeling tea was assured.
