Queen of Darjeeling - Loose Leaf

100% Guaranteed


Home to some of the world's most famous teas, Darjeeling is revered the world over for producing the 'champagne of black teas', treasured for its rich golden liquor and distinctive muscatel flavours. With breathtaking views across the majestic Himalayas, Darjeeling is also known as the 'Queen of the Hills', and understandable why Tibetan monks had called this home as far back as 1765.


1st Flush Organic Black Tea (FTGFOP1). Selected by our tea master from over 80 tea estates in Darjeeling as the best organic first flush tea of the season.

Tasting Notes

Vibrant tantalising complex sweet citrus notes. Perfect for afternoon tea with lighter ginger biscuits and cream cakes. Always best drunk black, but if you do add milk make sure that you don't over infuse your tea when making it stronger.
