Darjeeling, often referred to as the "Champagne of Teas," produces one of the world's most revered black teas. Pure Black Tea from Darjeeling, India, boasts a unique muscatel flavor, a result of the combination of the region's cool, misty climate and the high-altitude terroirs. This prized tea offers a delicate aroma paired with a brilliant golden hue, making it a luxurious experience for every tea lover.
For a perfect cup of Darjeeling's Pure Black Tea, use one teaspoon of tea leaves per cup. Pour freshly boiled water over the leaves, and let steep for 3-4 minutes. Depending on the specific flush and your taste preferences, you can adjust the brewing time. The brew should exhibit a light golden color, indicating its top-notch quality.
The history of Darjeeling tea is intertwined with colonial influences and native traditions. Originally, the region was recognized for its therapeutic attributes, but by the mid-1800s, the British introduced tea plantations, forever altering Darjeeling's landscape and legacy. While China and Japan have their centuries-old tea traditions, Darjeeling's relatively younger history has still managed to etch its name prominently on the global tea map, thanks to the unmatched quality of its brews.
