Talking Darjeeling Tea Today Darling

darjeeling

Darjeeling, from the foothills of the Himalayas, is one of India’s most famous tea-growing regions and now is the time for First Flush!

Darjeeling itself is a rather small region between India’s borders with Nepal, Bhutan, and Bangladesh.  Tea leaves have been thriving her since the 1800’s.

In Darjeeling tea is still harvested by hand, with two leaves and a bud as standard.  It’s nickname as “the world’s greatest tea” is accurate!

First Flush Darjeeling is a pale gold with a hint of green and floral and grassy notes. Second Flush is a little coppery and mellow and fruity in taste

Autumnal Flush is an auburn with smoky spicy hints.

 

My favorites in the Darjeeling Teas are Taylors of Harrogate and Harney & Sons. One loose leaf and one sachet for travels.

Try some now while Harney & Sons are having a great sale!
