Known as “the champagne of teas” for its delicacy and finest quality, our Organic Darjeeling tea is surely to be discovered by all tea addicts!
Darjeeling tea owes its name to the Darjeeling area of West Bengal in India, where it is produced. It has a pungent floral aroma and a certain tannic spiciness. It also boasts a delicate wine-like Muscate flavour.
There are three harvesting periods for Darjeeling tea, which are called the first flush (harvested in March-April), the second flush (harvested in May-June) and the autumnal flush (October-November).
This Organic Darjeeling tea of exceptionally high quality (FTGFOP) is a first flush. Darjeeling tea has a great deal of health benefits. As many other tea types, it is a source of antioxidants, that are a great form of cancer prevention, and they also slow the ageing of your skin.
Besides, its very own health benefit is that Fine Darjeeling Tea prevents dehydration. What is more, Darjeeling tea, despite being a black tea, is known for its stress reducing qualities.
Finally, our Organic Darjeeling Tea will appeal to everyone who is interested in healthy lifestyle, because it contains only organic components.
Organic Darjeeling Tea is not usually served with milk in order that you may best appreciate its delicacy! Enjoy a cup of Fine Darjeeling Tea!
India is the greatest tea production country in the world! About 900,000 tons of Indian black tea is exported to other countries yearly. However, tea cultivation is rather recent in India, as it did not exist there until the 19th century. The reason why the Indians started growing tea is because India was a British colony. In addition, Indian climate is very suitable for tea cultivation.
Therefore, similar to their Sri Lankan peers, the Indians wanted to boost their economy. And that is when tea production came in handy. Most tea that comes from India is black.
There are 3 main regions of tea production in India: Assam, Darjeeling and Nilgiri.
The tea coming from Nilgiri is not the best-known tea, because it is produced in relatively small quantities. However, given that it grows at very high altitudes, it has a very delicate taste. Therefore, many refined tea lovers hold this tea in great awe.
On the other hand, Assam tea and Darjeeling tea are, indeed, very famous. Bedford tea is proud to offer you an extensive collection of Indian Black tea, where you can find both these teas.
For instance, our collection of Fine Darjeeling Tea contains two tea types, both of which have their own features and benefits. The greatest advantage of our Organic Darjeeling tea is its organic ingredients, that will please every healthy foodie.
Another very interesting type of Fine Darjeeling Tea, that we are very proud of is Margaret’s Hope Tea First Flush Darjeeling! This finest quality Darjeeling Tea has a very romantic story behind it!
