Quite unlike tradtional teas from Kangra, this tea is an aromatic delight.The light golden liquor begins on a notes of forest floor and silk-tree blossom with hints of fresh legumes. The tea finishes on a refreshing note of cooked vegetables mixed with fruity notes that linger throughout the finish. Overall, a heady, smooth, and sweet vegetal spring black tea that starts your day on a light note!

  • How are your teas packed?
    After sourcing our teas directly from plantations within hours of harvest, we bring them to our state-of-the-art tea facility in New Delhi, India. The teas then go through rigorous rounds of cleaning, sorting, quality testing to remove any impurities/dust/foreign particles. Teas then pass through a final 10+ quality check points for leaf size, aroma, liquor, flavors etc. They are then vacuum-packaged in opaque aluminium-lined bags using sophisticated machinery. These vacuum-bags are then stored in a dehumidified, temperatuere-controlled warehouse which ensures that the teas remain garden-fresh and maintain their character. Upon recieving a consumer's order, we further pack the required quantity of tea in smaller vacuum-sealed packs which are boxed in the retail boxes and then sent over to our own delivery centres located in various parts of the world.

Excellent tea

I like this tea very much and appreciate what a great value it is at this price. It produces a fairly lightly colored tea that smells (to me) like freshly cut grass. It is also a fairly green tea for one that is sold as a black tea. I wonder if it is only partly fermented.

Great tea

I've bought this tea several times and it always amazes me how good this tea is because it's one of the less expensive teas I've ever bought. I'll buy it again within my next purchase. No doubts.

Outstanding Value for the Money

Quite a surprise. Maybe the best tea I've had in this price range. Can compete with far more expensive regions, gardens, and seasons. Nicely coppery and clear cuppa. Sufficiently complex aroma, robust enough, but not too dark or dull / roasted. I'd judge it a very good breakfast tea all year round.

Love this tea!

I liked this darjeeling so much I have ordered it a second time. I steep for 4 minutes and enjoy lightly sweetened with cane sugar.
