This is an impressive work about one of the world’s best teas, Darjeeling. The book is nearly 600 pages long, was written by Gangadhar Banerjee and Srijeet Banerjee came out in 2007.
Unfortunately, the book is hopelessly dull and contains almost no useful information, at least not for a private person. Sure, it contains some of Darjeeling earliest history and some anecdotes about tea personalities but it does not address anything about the tea plantations, on how to make tea or whatever it is that makes it unique. Instead, the list endless amounts of uninteresting sales, wages and comparisons with other tea producing areas. It does not contain a single illustration eather.
