Huge forest areas were cleared and tea was planted. Chinese experts were called in to teach the art of tea making and thousands of Nepalese were hired to work in the tea gardens. Darjeeling Tea has become so famous for its aroma and delicacy of taste that it was soon named the "Champagne of the East".
