In the foothills of the Himalayas, in the state of West Bengal, India, is the town of Darjeeling. It is still the end of the 1881-completed narrow-gauge Darjeeling Himalayan Railway, or “Toy Train,” which served as a summer retreat for the affluent British Raj. It is well known for the distinctive black tea produced on plantations scattered throughout the area’s slopes.
