Monsoon season in northern India brings rapid growth of smaller tea leaves as there is abundant moisture and less sun. The leaves are further oxidized, which brings forward more nutty and woody flavors than earlier harvests, and the floral nose gives way to stone-fruits. However, the distinct notes of a Darjeeling brew remain: the muscatel flavor of spice and musk. This delicious tea is hearty enough to withstand the addition of cream, but try it without to experience all of the nuance.

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 195°F. Add 1 tsp of tea leaves to an 8oz cup. Pour boiling water over the tea leaves and let steep 3 minutes.

Ingredients:

  • FTGFOP1 Organic Darjeeling black tea

Origin:

Jungpana Estate, Darjeeling, India
