How It Tastes

Aromatic and bright with penetrating flavor; nutty and floral.

History

Darjeeling Choice is a broken grade leaf developed specifically for a rich and invigorating infusion.

Worth Noting

The steep hillside district of Darjeeling includes some 70 tea gardens, with the Bengal plain directly south and the Himalayan crest directly north. Weather, soil, high altitude and some of India’s oldest tea bushes create unique flavors that have resisted imitation anywhere else. Darjeeling Choice is a full-bodied Broken Orange Pekoe (B.O.P.) grade tea, emphasizing the brisk qualities of this origin.
