Description

The second flush of this light and fragrant Darjeeling black tea has the signature muscatel flavour as well as a fruity and earthy note. Premium loose leaf tea presented in individually wrapped pyramid bags to offer the optimum in flavour and convenience. Also available: loose leaf tea caddy and teabags. The East India Company acquired territory in the Darjeeling district after the Nepal War. In 1839, Dr. Campbell was appointed Superintendent of the area by the Company, and experimented with planting tea in the grounds of his official residence. The success of the plants led to the establishment of numerous gardens, and the unique ‘muscatel’ flavour of the second flush teas became well-known and highly prized. Then, as now, the high-altitude plantations above five thousand feet produced the finest qualities. After 1850, the cultivation area was extended and the success of Darjeeling tea was assured. This tea is sourced from a tea estate certified by The Ethical Tea Partnership.
