To taste Darjeeling is to taste the landscape where it is grown. Intermittent rain, sun and moisture-laden mists nurture the century-old tea gardens in the landscape that inspired Rudyard Kipling to craft his stories. The smallest shoots, still covered in dew, are picked by hand at first light to deliver one of our finest teas.
Ideally warm the pot first with a splash of hot water. Use one teaspoon (around 2g) per cup and always use freshly drawn and boiled water. Allow to brew for 3-5 minutes according to taste. Can be drunk with or without milk.
