Session Details

Mid-19th century, during the Opium Wars the fate of Indian Tea was decided. In 1838, the first batch of Indian tea was shipped to England and in January, 1839 it was auctioned at India House, London. And since then because of its close proximity to Assam and Darjeeling, Kolkata has become the Mecca for tea lovers.
