Here is the current weather in Darjeeling
In general, dry weather is prevailing in Darjeeling estates since November though there have been little and scattered rainfall in December in some places.
This year Holi is on 28th February which is earlier than last year. So first flush is expected around that time.
Normally, first flush comes earlier in Badamtam,Barnesbeg and Thurbo than M’Hope and Castleton.
However, lots of things depend on the political situation as well since the GNLF wants settlement of their claims for separate statehood- Gorkhaland – within 45 days.
So we should new season teas soon. However there maybe some political problems that will prevent the teas from leaving Darjeeling.
