Our traditional teabags filled with a distinctly delicate black tea, picked by hand in the Himalayan foothills.
Darjeeling tea is famed for its sparkling clarity of taste and crystalline sweetness, benefiting from the steady rainfall, light soil and cool air of the Himalayan foothills. The British first established plantations in Darjeeling in the 1840s, using seeds smuggled from China, and some of the original China Jat bushes are still cultivated today.
Picked during the second harvest of the year between May and June, this “Second Flush” Darjeeling takes on some of the warmth of late spring, with developed fruit notes coming through in the cup. You'll often hear connoisseurs refer to the “muscatel” quality of a good Second Flush variety, and it's true that this particular Darjeeling tea has a real sense of that delicious dessert wine sweetness. Far lighter than most black teas, our Darjeeling teabags are best brewed lightly and enjoyed without milk – you'll find it's sublimely refreshing at any time of day.
