About this tea

Tea Story

Darjeeling is known not only for its quality, but for its variety. During the 19th century, imported China tea was planted along with indigenous bushes from low-lying Assam. As a result, many hybrids now populate the gardens. The elevation of a single estate may sweep from 2,000 feet up to 6,000 feet, with the temperature and cloud cover varying widely. High-grown teas are the most revered, as the cool weather slows the growth of the leaves and concentrates the flavor. Add to this the three distinct plucking seasons – first flush, second flush and autumnals – and the range of quality from even a single estate can vary enormously. Darjeeling Fancy is a leaf grade second flush tea with a noticeably puckery quality and a rich, flowery bouquet.

Brewing Tips

Start with a preheated cup or teapot.
Measure 1 spoonful (3g) of tea for each cup of water.
Bring the water to a rolling boil; steep tea for 4 minutes.
Strain leaves while pouring.
