Unusual for Darjeeling, these leaves have been only lightly oxidized to produce a lively green color and fresh clean taste. More vegetal in flavor than a first flush and more floral than a standard green, this lovely tea lingers on one's palate and memory. Grown and processed in the high foothills of the Himalayas at Giddapahar Estate, which is a small family-owned operation in Kurseong Valley.

Extra Info:

Tea in North India is produced for about nine months of the year, from March to November. The same tea plant may be plucked (harvested) thirty times during this period. Teas produced from the same plant, but during a different time of the year can produce a very different tasting tea because of a change in the environmental conditions, mainly the weather and season, which will affect the growing conditions. A good tea maker has to be very sensitive to these changes, and may have to fine tune his processes on a daily basis to get the best results. There is no machine that can help him, and he must rely on his finely tuned "nose". The tea that you will receive will be from a single "batch" of tea produced on a particular day of a particular season.

Brewing Instructions:

Bring filtered or spring water to 190°F. Add 1.5 tsp of tea leaves to an 8oz cup. Pour boiling water over the tea leaves and let steep 3 minutes.

  • Organic Darjeeling Green Tea
