Fine Darjeeling Tea
Darjeeling tea is one of the most famous teas in the world. In addition, it is definitely the most elegant type of Indian Black Tea. That is why people often refer to it as the ‘champagne of teas’! And that is also why we called our collection of this tea type “Fine Darjeeling Tea”.
In contrast with Assam tea, Darjeeling grows at very high altitudes, over 2,000 metres. There is a particular rule that applies both to Ceylon Black tea and Indian Black Tea. The higher the altitude, the more delicate and sweet the taste of the tea. On the other hand, the lower the altitude, the more full-bodied and strong its taste. Given that Darjeeling tea grows at very high altitudes, its taste is so delicate and elegant, that one almost forgets that it is a black tea!
The Darjeeling region is not very vast, it covers only 181 sq km. It sits on the edge of the Himalayas. Provided that the region is rather small, not very much tea is produced there. But Darjeeling tea is especially famous for its quality, and it particularly applies to Fine Darjeeling Tea. And the most exquisite variation of Fine Darjeeling Tea is ‘Margaret’s Hope First Flush Darjeeling Tea’!Read More
