AFTERNOON DARJEELING, is Organic, Fair Trade black tea.
Known as the champagne of teas, Darjeeling grows in pristine mountain gardens in the Indian Himalayas. Pure black tea at its best, this treasured, second-flush Darjeeling yields a gleaming, golden-colored cup with a dry mouth-feel, mild astringency and delicate notes of white grapes, clover honey, almond and spice.
One Way to Enjoy
Is with a Splash of Cream. 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.
