Organic Darjeeling (WS)

Known as 'The Champagne of Teas' this high mountain Organic Darjeeling has an incredibly complex flavour profile that seems to evolve from sip to sip.

Grown in the high elevations of Shree Dwarika in Darjeeling, this tea drinks more like a partially oxidized oolong rather than a black tea. It has strong notes of melon, grapes and lemongrass.

Darjeeling is well known for its small and gentle leaves as it comes from the Camellia Sinensis Sinensis varietal rather than the more common Camellia Sinensis Assamica varietal.

Darjeeling tea cultivation has a relatively short history and only began when civil surgeon Arthur Campbell began planting some Chinese tea seeds in 1841. Shortly after, the British began planting nurseries and establishing a tea industry in order to compete with China.
