Darjeeling

A History of the World's Greatest Tea

Winner of the 2016 IACP Award: Literary Food Writing

Set against the backdrop of the looming Himalayas and drenching monsoons, this is the story of how Darjeeling developed its tea industry under Imperial British rule and eventually came to produce the world's finest leaves. But today the industry is battling dropping production ,a violent struggle for independent statehood, labour unrest and the devastating effect of climate change. It's the story, too, of the measures being taken to counter these challenges and save India's most exclusive and iconic brew that are nothing short of radical.

A fascinating portrait of the region and a story rich in intrigue and empire, full of adventurers and romance, it illuminates the historic, arcane and changing world of this celebrated tea.
Rezension
It is not just about Darjeeling, though; and not even just about tea. It is also about the history of colonial and post-colonial India . As for the rest, it is a book teeming with characters and interest. Koehler, described as "writer, photographer, traveller and cook", has the polymath's curiosity for everything, as well as the writer's ability to listen to and retell a good story . A richly digressive book Nicholas Lezard Guardian
