2nd Flush Darjeeling 100g Loose Leaf Tea
Loose Leaf Black Tea
Darjeeling, a Tibetan name translating as 'Land of the thunderbolt', is one of the most renowned tea growing regions: once visited, never forgotten. Its misty slopes lie in the foothills of the Himalayas in west Bengal, North East India, not far from the border with neighbouring Nepal. The distinctive teas crafted here are among the world's best, as the high altitudes yield slow-growing teas with real intensity of flavour.
This is a truly delicious orthodox tea from a venerable estate we consider to be one of the region's best. The wiry, well twisted leaves have a curly silver tip, reminding us of lambs' tails! The brew is tawny and bright, the complex flavour sweet, aromatic and intense, the finish a lingering citrus delight.
