Tea plantations were established and have expanded all over the area today because of growing demand. The services of Chinese experts were then requisitioned to teach the art of tea making and thousands of Nepalese were hired in the tea plantations. Darjeeling tea, which had a premium value in the international market, began to be called the ‘Champagne of the East’ and for years formed the mainstay of the economy of this area. To this day, the name ‘Darjeeling’ continues to be synonymous with tea.)
