Known as the champagne of tea, Darjeeling grows in pristine mountain gardens along the Himalayan Mountains. Pure black tea at its best, this lovely leaf produces a copper-colored liquor with notes of white grapes, clover honey, currants and spice.
Darjeeling is one of the most famous tea growing regions in the world. The distinctive flavor and aroma of Darjeeling tea is treasured by connoisseurs and cannot be replicated in any other region. In fact, Darjeelings are so sought after that each year more tea is sold under the name of Darjeeling than can possibly be produced! (Don’t worry, we know the family that owns the garden and buy direct so ours is legitimate).
This Darjeeling comes from the prized 2nd flush (slightly stronger than the 1st flush) and has a complex, fruity and floral aroma complimented by the characteristic Muscat grape flavor, brisk mouth feel and long lasting finish. This elegant tea is a great introduction to the unique flavor profile that makes teas from this region so highly respected.
