100% Darjeeling Tea. We know it because we grow it.Runglee Rungliot

What You See Is What You Get…….

A premium Darjeeling tea, Runglee Rungliot is one of the oldest brands of Duncans, named exclusively after the garden it is grown in. It has been around since inception of the company, and promises pure delight in every sip. Legend has it that years ago, in search of the finest tea, a Buddhist monk stepped into our garden. Inhaling the aroma, and observing the light colour, he exclaimed ‘Runglee Rungliot’, which meant, ‘this far and no further’. Thus was born a garden and a tea. 

Packaged in shades of cool green, with the Himalayan peaks as the backdrop, this brand is famed for its light liquor and lingering aroma. A connoisseur’s cup, it remains true to the age-old ritual of brewing the fragrant leaves in a traditional teapot.

Available earlier only in a 250gm caddy, Runglee was re-launched in Calcutta in January ’98 with an eye-catching 250 gm and 100gm carton. The launch was marked by what has now become the prestigious annual golf festival in Calcutta, the Runglee Rungliot Golf Championship.

Dissemination and Growth
100% Darjeeling enjoys a pride of place in the markets of Calcutta, Delhi and Chennai with its band-wagon of brand loyalists, and is currently spreading its base all over the country.

It was launched in 1981 as a dust brand in the popular category, and this ‘Champion of Strong Teas’ gives strong colour, strong flavour and strong taste. The uncluttered look of the packs, with No.1 inscribed in bold, goes well with the no-nonsense, straightforward image of this brand.
