Darjeeling Tea

Often referred to as the "champagne of teas," Darjeeling tea is prized for its vibrant aromatics and flavorful cup; the liquor ranges in color from golden yellow to rich amber, depending on its season of harvest. The flavor can be light and floral with tropical fruit sweetness for a first flush offering or darker and toasty/fruity with notes of muscatel for a second flush selection. There is truly a loose leaf Darjeeling tea that will appeal to every taste. Organic single-estate teas and specialty blends are available.
