One of the most renowned of all Darjeeling estates, it is the crème de la crème of all Goodricke’s gardens. It was planted in 1885 by Dr. Charles Graham. The slopes span Kurseong, Pankhabari and the Hill Cart Roads. Snow peaked ranges and soaring verdant hills encircle the garden. The predominantly China bushes grow at elevations of 915 metres to 1830 metres above sea level. The name Castleton has been derived from a building which looked like a castle and still exists in Kurseong. Castleton’s teas, created from select and pure China bushes are exquisite and delicate. Fragrant like roses, golden like sun-spun amber, the teas are most prized for their unique ‘muscatels’, comparable to sweet summer wines, with intense fragrant top notes of musk.
