Over the last 15 years of Manjhee Valley's return into production. One of the most unique feature we have noticed is the 'keeping quality' of our teas. Tea as we know has a shelf life of 18 months, while some areas have a shorter shelf life. But Kangra Tea, due to its bio dynamic soil and weather pattern, has a shelf life of 36 months. And we as well as our buyers are surprised to note that teas are still fine to sip even after 60 months ( 5 years form the date of production).
Manjhee Valley is made up of our estate and the people who work in the garden as well as the factory. We employ more that 130 staff in total and are happy to work towards up-liftment of smaller estates in the Kangra region.

Story of the name "Manjhee"
Legend has it that a 'gaddi', a shepherd as they are known in Himalayan mountains, fondly called Manjhee was known to be ever helpful to people who needed to cross a raging river. It was along this river that the tea estate and factory was established. Manjhee was such an integral part of the river, that eventually the river was named after him. The tea factory and the estate provided employment and support to the local populace and was aptly christened Manjhee Valley, which has now witnessed more than 90 years of history and folklore.
