Darjeeling is probably the most curious tea to emerge from India. It’s a Chinese leaf, grown in West Bengal, flavoured with French grapes and Himalayan breezes. This is premium, OP1 grade Darjeeling. While technically a black tea, it’s less oxidized than a classic Black Assam. This makes the flavour profile way more complex: delicate florals muddled with minty-fresh mountain zephyrs and slightly tannic pops of Muscat. It’s fruity and earthy, like a good wine. Some people call Darjeeling the ‘Champagne of Teas’, but we think of it more like a gin – botanical, sweet and endlessly interesting.
