The Happy Valley Estate at the foothills of the Himalayas is one of the oldest and most renowned tea gardens in Darjeeling. As a Second Flush tea, the slightly later harvest yields a more developed and slightly nutty taste while maintaining the muscatel sweetness so characteristic of a good Darjeeling.
There’s a certain richness to the cup which makes it the perfect match for a slice of cake.
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.
A truly refreshing tea, with a very clean and satisfying flavour that just bursts into life in the mouth! Whilst a little dear- the reason for 4 rather than 5 stars- it goes much further than cheaper teas and once tasted, you realize that you had never before tasted a truely good tea.
