KOLKATA: For the first time in 156 years, Darjeeling tea , the country’s first geographical indication -protected product, will cease to enter the wholesale markets worldwide – both via auction and private sales – from the second week of August. Hills tea gardens, closed since June 9 owing to the Gorkha Janmukti Morcha -led indefinite strike, will be putting their last lot of leaves on the block in the first two weeks of the next month.
