Tea in North India is produced for about nine months of the year, from March to November. The same tea plant may be plucked (harvested) thirty times during this period. Tea produced from the same plant, but during a different time of the year can produce a very different flavour because of a change in the environmental conditions, mainly the weather and season.
A good tea maker has to be very sensitive to these changes, and may have to fine tune his processes on a daily basis to get the best of results. There is no machine that can help him, and he must rely on his refined olfactory senses.
All Glenburn tea comes from a series of Special Harvests conducted throughout the year on the best days of a particular season.
