Classic Tin – Darjeeling
High in the mountains, deep in the mists that surround the Himalayas is Darjeeling, the Queen of Teas. Ours is a blend of First Flush and Autumnal teas from the best gardens. Try our box of 20 individually wrapped tea sachets. Each wrapped sachet brews a 12 oz cup of tea.
Details: Darjeeling is has developed a good reputaion among tea drinkers for over 150 years, so we wanted something that would respect that tradition; a blend that combined many esteemed qualities but that was still reasonably priced. We offer better Darjeelings from the best esates of the Darjeeling region, but those teas can get quite expensive.
Dry Leaves: Small green leaves can be found in this Darjeeling blend (hard withered green flakes) along with larger brown leaves.
Liquor: This tea brews a light golden color.
Aroma: A good mixture of the bright aromas of a First Flush Darjeeling: pineapple & grapefruit and the darker stone fruit notes of later season teas.
Caffeine Level: Caffeinated
Body: This is a medium bodied tea.
Flavors: This tea delivers a good blend of bright citrus notes and darker notes of stone apricots and plums.
Brewing Time: 4 to 5 minutes
Brewing Temp: 212º
