Queen of Darjeeling - Organic Loose Leaf

Size Guide

Home to some of the worlds most famous teas, Darjeeling is revered the world over for producing the 'champagne of black teas'. Sourced direct from the very best tea estates in Darjeeling, this seasons first flush is treasured for it's rich golden liquor and distinctive muscatel flavour. We try to keep it simple and only work with the best estates but invariably every spring we taste the new seasons teas from every tea garden and select what we think is the best organic 'invoices'.

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. Really worth a visit if you can, we found the 10 Best hotels in Darjeeling - for all budgets.

  • Ingredients: 100% Organic 1st Flush Black Tea (FTGFOP1 grade)
  • Origin: Darjeeling, India
  • Taste: 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 made sure that you don't over infuse your tea when making it stronger.

    • Ever since Dr Campbell planted the first Chinese tea varieties in 1840, Darjeeling has benefited from it's altitude, mountain climate and rich soil to develop into arguably one of the worlds most famous tea growing regions. Fair to say, Darjeeling teas are now recognised the world over and we work very hard to ensure we consistently bring you the best Darjeeling teas of the season.
