About Estate Darjeeling

Tea Type : Black Tea

While it is categorized as "black tea" one of the unique features of Darjeeling is that it actually ranges from green to oolong to black in every batch. During the oxidation process (the level of oxidation tea undergoes is one of the key differences between green, oolong and black teas) Darjeeling tea is infrequently raked or mixed. This means that some parts of the tea are not exposed to as much air as others, leaving these less oxidized parts closer to the green end of the spectrum. Looking at loose Darjeeling, one can see this mix of color shades in the leaves.

Our classic Darjeeling Tea comes from the Golden Valley of Darjeeling. The world’s most famous and geographically protected tea-growing origin is located at the northern tip of the state of West Bengal in India. Located in the Kurseong South Valley in the Indian tea-growing district of Darjeeling, the Monteviot estate is one of the smallest and oldest tea plantations in India today. Tea Forté is proud to offer this organically grown, well-crafted leaf from the Monteviot estate.

Steeping instructions

1. Heat water to 208˚F.
2. Place tea in cup and pour water over the leaves.
3. Steep for 3-5 minutes.
4. Enjoy!

For loose leaf iced teas, use 2 tsp per 8oz glass.

    Wonderful taste, great packaging!

    I love the flavor of this tea that I was first served at high tea in a hotel in London. I asked our server where I could buy it and was amazed to learn that it is not sold in England anywhere. High praise for a tea from the United States. I love the packaging on this tea it really sets this tea apart I am very happy with my purchase.

    Rich & Creamy Black Tea

    I always drink my black tea with a spot of soy milk, and this pairing is absolutely delicious! Perfect comfort tea in the morning or night. And the pyramid packaging is so beautiful and elegant! A lovely way to entertain!

    Great Black Tea Choice

    I have shopped numerous companies and have found the Estate Darjeeling tea to be both smooth and satisfying. While it's not quite as robust as others I have tasted, it is very balanced and makes a nice morning or afternoon cup of tea.

    I enjoy drinking hot tea year around and have been doing so for at least the last thirty years of my adult life. I’ve tried a number of different Darjeeling brands and your Estate Darjeeling is the best - hands down!
