Kangra tea

  • Himachal Pradesh’s unique Kangra tea has become the second product of the country to get registered with the European Commission (EC) as a protected Geographical Indication (GI), paving the way for its sale in European countries.
  • The registration was an important tool to recognise the quality, genuineness, and reputation of the product in the European markets.
  • It would boost the sale of Kangra tea and would eventually benefit tea growers in Palampur, Baijnath, Kangra, and Dharamshala in Kangra district, Jogindernagar of Mandi district and Bhattiyat area of Chamba district.
  • The Kangra tea — known for its unique taste and fragrance, attributed to its abundant pyrazine contents — was given GI status in the year 2005 by the Registrar of Geographical Indicators, Chennai.
