Proper plucking of Darjeeling Tea leaves is as unique as its flavour. Only the smallest shoots, comprising of two leaves and a bud are plucked. It requires 22,000 such shoots, all plucked by hand to produce 1 Kg of tea. Pluckers are so quick and skilful that it is often impossible to follow the motion of their hands and fingers as they pluck.

Tasseography (also known as tasseomancy or tassology) is a divination or fortune-telling method that interprets patterns in tea leaves, coffee grounds, or wine sediments. The terms derive from the French word tasse (cup), which in turn derives from the Arabic tassa (cup), and the Greek suffixes -graph, -logy, and -mancy (divination).
