Other notes: Sourenee Tea Estate is an Organic certified tea garden situated in the picturesque Mirik Valley region of Darjeeling district of West Bengal, India. The name Sourenee is a combination of two words. "Sour" – this kind of tree grows in this region, with some medicinal value and “Rani” – the queen of valley. The garden covers an area of almost 137 hectares which stretches in an altitude of between 700 m to 1300 m. The scenic beauty is unparalleled. The age of Sourenee Tea Estate is more than 100 years. The tea shrubs are grown on the steep slopes of the garden. The old tea shrubs are being replaced by new clone plants in stages. The garden is mainly fed by rain-water which is available nearly 8 to 9 months of the year. Irrigation facilities are being extended to the areas required.
