About this product

Product details

Grown in the foothills of the Himalayas, this tea is grown at high elevation where the cool air slows leaf growth and develops fine character. Sweet, winy, with a floral aroma that seems to reach right out of the cup.

Peet's Organic Darjeeling Kalimpong is now a Mighty Leaf tea. Same origin, same flavor, same quality.

I agree with all other reviewers. Since Peets switched to Mighty Leaf, all of their teas are a disappointment. I tend to drink the Mighty Leaf Darjeeling version when I visit a Peets store, but this is only because it is the best of a bad lot of choices. I have to steep the tea just right to get a so-so cup of tea. If I brew it longer to make it stronger and hopefully more flavorful, it becomes very bitter. This can happen quickly from pour to strain. I wish you would return your older line up or at the very least acknowledge your mistake and attempt to remedy it. FYI, I've been coming to Peets for more than 20 years.

I took a chance on this last Fall and was very disappointed. It seems that Peet's really does not care about giving us good quality teas as it once did.

I am giving Organic Darjeeling Kalimpong far more Stars than prior reviewers, though I agree that Mighty Leaf (allegedly the same tea source as for prior Peet's teas) is a much poorer quality than Peet's loose teas of the past. That said, of the Mighty Leaf loose teas, we've found this Darjeeling to be the best of a bad lot. It has decent Darjeeling fragrance, though it is definitely not up to par with older Peet's Darjeelings, and it is organic.

If Peet's wishes to retain its tea customers, it had better return to its former good quality and selection. Dumping Peet's teas and morphing into Mighty Leaf tea seems to have been a "corporate decision" to throw tea customers under the bus... in favor of more lucrative coffee income? Those who desire quality loose teas, especially good organic Darjeelings, should try Chado Tea (order online), such as Risheehat Estate Organic or Makaibari Estate Organic Darleelings.

Get with it, Peet's! Admit that a mistake has been made and restore good loose teas to loyal Peet's customers. Don't make loss of your tea business a "self-fulfilling prophecy" by offering inferior quality teas and selection! And, while you are at it, get rid of the plastic "tea pouches." Bring back, non-toxic, unbleached paper tea bags for those who wish the convenience of tea bags at work or for travel.

For every bad review and online complaint, there are many, many more disappointed customers out here who are so bummed about Peet's decision to essentially dump quality tea business that those persons have not bothered to write! Read the tea leaves! Please bring back Peet's Tea quality!

I've been drinking the Peets Darjeeling Extra Fancy Kalimpong tea since 2005 (before it changed to organic darjeeling kalimpong) and even when the tea changed to the organic variety, i tolerated the change in taste. But the mighty leaf version is truly flavourless. Agreed with all the bad reviews. About ready to give up and stop patronising Peets. I miss the good old days before that corporate-minded company took over the Peets of old.

It used to be great before MightyLeaf - And,when you tell'em about the catastrophic degradation of tea quality, you get lectured on "how agricultural products are different" - Anyone knows another source for quality teas?
