Champagne of Teas RSS
Known as the 'Champagne of Teas', Darjeeling tea is loved for its exquisite, delicate flavours and delightful floral aroma, with characteristics sometimes likened to a fine Muscatel wine. This fabulous tea originated from the Chinese tea plant, Camellia sinensis, but has been cultivated in the Darjeeling district of West Bengal, India for over 160 years. It owes its excellent reputation to the efforts of tea growers striving to improve their product over the years, resulting in more complex and unique flavours being found in its various forms. Although traditionally processed as a black tea, green, white and Oolong Darjeeling teas are also available.
