Glenburn Tea Estate Looking for a perfect cup of tea? You are not alone! According to a local legend, Mr. Kimble Murray, the first manager of the Glenburn tea estate, still roams around here looking for a perfect cup of tea! Glenburn is one of the first tea estates to have come up in 1859 in Darjeeling. The name is a dead giveaway! Yes, it was the enterprising Scotts who started this estate and named it Glenburn - fondly remembering the glens of the Scottish Highlands. Glenburn is today owned and lovingly nurtured by the Prakash family. In fact, it is now the fourth generation of the family who is managing it. They are famous as the Chaiwala family for their century-old association with the estate. Situated on a hillock above the banks of the River Rungneet, one can have a stunning view of the mighty Kanchenjunga - the third highest mountain in the world.
