Darjeeling is a lovely afternoon tea. Our TGFOP is a larger leaf, brewing a light cup with a delicate floral aroma and fruit muscatel flavours.
Darjeeling tea is renowned for its excellence and often displays muscatel flavours and floral aromas. Darjeeling lies to the northeast of India, among the Himalayas, in the state of West Bengal. Every morning, as the mist rises from the mountains, tea pluckers make their way up the steep mountain paths toward the 87 gardens that have been producing the black teas of Darjeeling. The gardens are in fact plantations that, at times, stretch over hundreds of acres. But, they are still ‘gardens', because all tea grown here carries the name of the estate, or garden, in which it is grown.
Serve either black, with milk or lemon.
