Black Estate Tea
This exquisite tea comes from the Himalayas in Northern India and is wonderfully grounding and complex. A true estate Darjeeling is considered to be the champagne of teas - and once you taste it you will understand why!
The fragrance and taste is a complex bouquet that reaches right out of the cup. Some would describe the taste as nutty; others find it reminds them of black currants, but most often it is described as similar to the taste and fragrance of muscat grapes.
What Makes this Tea Amazing: Because Darjeeling tea is grown at such high altitudes and in relatively cool weather the bushes do not grow quickly, and as such the production is limited. The best time of the year for quality is during ‘second-flush’ (end May - end June). During this time Darjeelings are incomparable to any other tea in the world.
