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."

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.
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!
This is one of my favorite teas that I drink year-round because it's great served warm or chilled.
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.
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.
