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.

      Wonderful tea.

      The flavor and fragrance of this tea is simply wonderful. I just wish the 1 pound loose tea pouch had been available when the sale was going on...I will be needing to order more soon.

      Nice, simple, black tea.

      I normally go for the fruity flavorful teas but I was pleasantly surprised when I liked this black tea after trying a single steep from a set. It has a nice earthy flavor I enjoy and is great when I want to take a break from fruitiness.

      This tea is superb!

      This Estate Darjeeling tea has been my favorite for a long time. I brew it numerous times per day, and drink it as iced tea as well as the traditional way, hot in my little teapot. It is delicious, the perfect Darjeeling!
