Product Description

Rohini Tea Estate is located in the Kurseong valley of Darjeeling. The estate was closed for a period of 38 years from 1962 to 2000. From the old 1300 Hectares around 38 Hectares is still present. These teas are of the Chinese origin and in the second flush produce exquisite muscatel teas.

Insider Tip: We do blind taste testings of Darjeelings every season to select only the best! Each flush is unique, influenced by the weather and growing conditions. Try two Darjeelings from different estates together, or perhaps two flushes from the same estate, and you will be able to discern these disctinctions for yourself.

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 1st flush Darjeelings for a different flavor from the region.
