Available in both tea bags and loose tea, Murchie's Darjeeling Finest Blend Tea offers tea-drinkers a tasteful blend of some of the world's finest black teas.
It is a very smooth medium blend with a unique muscatel overtone, with Ceylon tea as a clear, smooth tasting base that enhances the distinctive 2nd flush muscatel flavour of our Darjeeling and the lively flavours of an autumnal flush Himalayan tea.
Darjeeling teas are grown in the Himalayan region of West Bengal, India and are considered the Champagne of tea. The unique hilly regions, climate and soil where it is grown create the musky spiciness that Darjeeling is known for and cannot be replicated elsewhere.
Ceylon tea is grown in Sri Lanka, an island off of the southern coast of India. The country Sri Lanka was called Ceylon until 1972 and although the name of the country changed at this time, the name Ceylon was kept for tea.
