The history of Darjeeling Tea dates back to the 1840's, when India was a British Colony. Before the arrival of the British, the forests of the region were known as Darjeeling today was inhabited by the Lepcha Tribes. In 1828, while visiting this region located in the backdrop of the snow-clad Himalayan Range, a young British called Captain Lloyd discovered the possibility of converting the region into a hill station. In 1839, Darjeeling was handed over to Dr. A. Campbell, a civil surgeon, who got transferred from Kathmandu to Darjeeling to become the first Superintendent of the Darjeeling District, a position which he held for the next 20 years. In 1841, Dr. Campbell brought the seeds of China variety of teas from Kumaon hills of north India and planted them near his residence in his Beech Wood Garden in Darjeeling, 2134 meters above the sea level. Seeing the success of Dr. Campbell's experimental tea nursery, the British Government decided to put out Tea Nurseries in this region in the year 1847.
