Darjeeling Loose Leaf Tea
Darjeeling Tea – Gielle Tea Garden – India
Grown on sun-bathed slopes tickled by cool breezes, Darjeeling tea offers a sweetness that’ll leave you smitten.
Our 125g bags are recyclable too.
Darjeeling is world-renowned as the ‘Champagne of teas’. Combining resplendent winey aromas with a sweet glassy freshness, this is the tea to choose for splendour with a soft heart. Lighter and less bitter than most black teas, Darjeeling is perfect for a refreshing drink with just enough complexity.
Logan says…“This is my go-to when I don’t need the kick of my morning brew. Then I’m chilled for the rest of the day.”
The town of Darjeeling nestles beneath the Himalayas in West Bengal, India, and is one of the most celebrated tea growing districts in the world. Chinese seeds were first planted in the region in the mid-1800s, and, before long, Darjeeling tea bushes carpeted the fertile hillside. The area is considered so special that it holds a Protected Geographical Indication, meaning that only tea grown in the region can call itself Darjeeling (another reason why it’s like Champagne!).
Our Darjeeling blend is grown in the beautiful Gielle Tea Gardens of West Bengal. The gardens get their name from a soft-flowing stream and mean ‘land of sweet water’ in the local Lepcha language. The Gielle Garden is part of the Teesta Valley tea gardens, which is the oldest tea company in India and gets our approval because it sounds like Tea-star!
Grown in the shadows of the Kangchenjunga mountain, the Darjeeling tea bushes develop flavour as the crisp winds ripple their leaves. Our Darjeeling is picked during the second flush, just as the tea leaves start to develop a gorgeously fruity, grape-like composure. Lush!
Delicately smooth yet deliciously stylish, our DARjeeLING tea will sweep you onto cloud nine and beyond…
