About Darjeeling tea: Darjeeling in North East India isn't easy to get to. Even the famous antique toy-train has to wind its way carefully through valleys and round mountains. But it's worth it for the region's speciality tea. The altitude gives Darjeeling its light, delicate taste and shimmering gold colour. So take a sip and escape the world on a journey of your own.

More about the Product

INGREDIENTS

Black tea from Darjeeling, India

BREWING INSTRUCTIONS

We believe that how you make your tea is equally as important as the tea you use, so here's how we like to make our tea.
  • Use one rounded teaspoon per person
  • Allow freshly boiled water to cool for two to three minutes
  • Pour on and brew for 3 to 4 minutes
  • This delicately flavoured tea is best drunk black or with just a touch of milk
And, for freshness every time, keep your tea somewhere cool, dark, dry and airtight!

About Black Tea

Black tea, just like green tea, comes from the Camellia Sinensis plant.

After plucking, the leaves are laid on drying trays & withered to remove some moisture and to make them more pliable.

The leaves are then rolled and may be cut

"Broken" leaves are laid out & a heady mixture of warm air, aromatic juices, bacteria & enzymes leads to oxidation (a natural reaction that affects strength & colour)

Oxidation is stopped by firing the leaves with hot air until they are the right (brown) colour depending on the region as the leaves dry they turn black.
