Did You Know?

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.

The mixed nature of Darjeeling leads to complex nutty and "muscatel" flavors not ordinarily found in black teas. Perhaps one of the reasons that Darjeeling is known as the the "Champagne of teas."

infuser infuser infuser infuser infuser My "Go To" Tea

Rich flavor with a hint of sweetness. No over-powering bitterness. No need to add a thing to this one, it's perfect. This tea is beautiful. It's my new "everyday" tea.

infuser infuser infuser infuser infuser My All Time Fav Classic

This tea is smooth and satisfying as my new favorite classic black. It doesn't have the bite of Ceylon, and it is great as iced tea also!

I received this tea as gift and I had never before tasted anything so full of flavour. The quality of the tea is amazing and well worth the money spent. I am excited to try more Flavours from Tea forte.

infuser infuser infuser infuser infuser A Must-Try Tea!

The Estate Darjeeling tea is simply the best black tea I have ever tasted. I got it as a gift from a friend and had it one day not knowing what it was like, and I was blown away. They're not lying when they say it's the "champagne of teas". No one can consider themselves a true fan of black teas until they have tried the Estate Darjeeling.
