One of the most scenic of all Goodricke estates, Badamtam presents a magnificent view of the Kanchenjunga. A serene and majestic, fourteen feet high bronze statue of the Buddha, sculpted by a renowned artist, sits like a guardian of peace over the vistas of tea bushes. Located 17 kms west of Darjeeling in the Lebong Valley and at an altitude ranging from 305 metres to 1830 metres above sea level, this famous garden was planted in 1858 by Christine Barnes. The name of the estate, could have been derived from a Lepcha word, which meant a bamboo water carrier. Badamtam produces excellent and delightful teas. Specially renowned, are the first flush teas, which are highly prized abroad–the Chinas being light and delicate, and the Assam hybrids brisk and bright.
