Delicious Darjeeling Classic Tea (Single Origin) - Loose Leaf
A delightfully bright and refreshing single origin Darjeeling tea (known as the ‘Champagne of Tea’). Tukdah Estate Darjeeling Tea has distinctive muscatel notes, hints of nuttiness and an aroma with wisps of sandalwood.
This is a delicate cup with a very special taste. Each delicious sip transports us to the magical foothills of the Himalayas where the leaves are gathered. Can be enjoyed at any time and we particularly like this as a mid-morning cup. It will be sure to put the spring back into your step!
Available in 50g (2 x 25g pouches - great for when you are out and about), 75g and 100g pouches.
Only around 80 tea gardens in the world are able to produce tea that can be called Darjeeling. These gardens are spread over seven main valleys in one district in West Bengal, India. It is a beautifully lush region that lies in the hilly beginnings of the North Eastern Himalayas.
The uniqueness of the region makes Darjeeling a tea without equal and hence its well-deserved reputation as the ‘Champagne of Tea’.
The Tukdah Estate is truly a shimmering jewel in the Darjeeling crown sitting high up in the beautiful hills, bathed with incredible amounts of monsoon rain.
We picked tea leaves from the Tukdah Estate as they provided us with the perfect balance of delicacy, the unmistakeable muscatel (fruity and aromatic) character in a refreshing medium bodied Darjeeling tea, which we think you’ll love.
Our Darjeeling Tea is Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe (TGFOP). ‘Golden’ refers to a higher proportion of sought-after buds from the Darjeeling tea plant. ‘Flowery Orange Pekoe’ are tea leaves that are the end bud and first fine and tender leaf of each shoot, which together are best bits of the Darjeeling Tea plant.
The Takduh Tea Estate is a member of the Ethical Tea Partnership. It employs over 800 people, who are well cared for with free housing, schooling, hospital care and places of worship. Situated high in the hills, the estate produces finished tea to a very high standard.
We would recommend brewing this tea lightly (no more than three minutes) and whilst you can add milk, we enjoy it just as it comes and sweeten to taste.
Interesting fact: In local folk-lore, Takdah means always covered, like the hills in the region that are often masked by a magical mist.
