Our Darjeeling tea offering is grown in the high-altitude foothills of the Himalayas. Due to the unique climate in the Darjeeling region, teas grown in this part of India tend to have a stimulating taste and aroma, setting them apart from other black teas.
Often called the “Queen of Indian Teas”, Darjeeling is a full-bodied tea whose infused leaf produces a cup with a coppery-red sparkle and a hint of delicate fruit overtones. Our selection is comprised of tea leaves grown in the second seasonal picking and is known as a “second flush” Darjeeling.
Brewing Tips: Our Darjeeling should be made with cold, filtered water that has been brought to a rolling boil (205-212° F). Using one rounded teaspoon of loose tea or one teabag for each cup required, pour the boiling water over the tea leaves. Darjeeling should be steeped for 3 minutes. Once the ideal brewing time has been reached, the leaves should be removed to prevent further steeping. Decant and enjoy!
