Darjeeling Loose Tea Pouch

A distinctly delicate loose leaf black tea, picked by hand in the Himalayan foothills. Far lighter than most black teas, our loose leaf Darjeeling is best brewed lightly & enjoyed without milk – you'll find it's sublimely refreshing at any time of day.

FULL DESCRIPTION

Darjeeling tea is famed for its sparkling clarity of taste and crystalline sweetness, benefiting from the steady rainfall, light soil & cool air of the Himalayan foothills. The British first established plantations in Darjeeling in the 1840s, using seeds smuggled from China, & some of the original China Jat bushes are still cultivated today.

Picked during the second harvest of the year between May & June, this “Second Flush” Darjeeling takes on some of the warmth of late spring, with developed fruit notes coming through in the cup. You'll often hear connoisseurs refer to the “muscatel” quality of a good Second Flush variety, & it's true that this particular Darjeeling tea has a real sense of that delicious dessert wine sweetness.
