Product Description

One of our top picks for this season. It was produced in a very limited amount from the earliest leaves of the Spring. This tea estate in Darjeeling was established in 1881, and is among the highest elevation in the area. This produces a floral, sweet and smooth cup. This garden consistently produces fine offerings from the foothills of the Himalayas.

Insider Tip: Try a first flush Darjeeling alongside a second flush - it is a great way to appreciate the art that goes into these teas.

Caffeine Level: Medium.

Darjeelings are black teas grown in India, but are a Chinese plant (camellia sinensis sinesis, rather than camellia sinensis assamica). This variety produces a lighter and sweeter flavor, in contrast to the malty character of an assam tea. Darjeeling is often called 'The Champagne of Tea' because of this sweet profile, reminiscent of muscat wine. Each tea is named for the estate it is grown on and picked at different times of the year (pickings are called flushes), which allow growers to develop the same plants into a variety of different teas. While estates in Darjeeling are most well-known for traditional black tea Darjeeling, they can also produce white, green, and oolong teas. Check out our offerings from the Doke Estate!
