Details

Grown in the northeast corner of India, among the foot hills of the Himalayan mountains, Darjeeling is a highly sought, coveted black tea.

 

Graded as FTGFOP1: second flush season.

 

It is the combination of high mountains, steep terrains, well-drained soils, extreme cold and intense heat, as well as a good level of rainfall that contribute to the exquisite muscatel character and floral aroma of Darjeeling teas.

Rich, Robust, Smooth, DelightfulReview by Caroline from Three Rivers, Ca.
I have not found a Darjeeling elsewhere that has as full bodied a flavor, & delivers the satisfaction of Darjeeling Estate Tea. It is bold and complex, yet smooth and not overpowering. Several others I have tried are either too weak to impart much flavor or overly bold with bitter aftertaste! I enjoy drinking it with a teaspoon of honey and squeezed lemon slice.

Robust, Flavorful and TastyReview by Phil from Oregon
We have tried many teas and tea blends to get a robust round tea for every day. Our very clean northwest water does not need sharp tannins to offset minerals it does not have. This tea has great varietal and very robust flavor with rounded soft tannins that make it drinkable without additives. I drink mine plain; my wife with milk. Five minutes steeping, remove the tea sock, enjoy! I keep an extra pound or two in the tea chest to avoid running out. (Posted on 2013-09-01)
