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.

      My favorite tea for several years

      I love this tea! I drink it every day. This is high quality, authentic, 100% Darjeeling. I mostly drink it iced, brewed fresh each time. Sometimes I add fresh ginger, and a touch of powdered cardamom. I highly recommend it!

      The Best

      I have always loved tea and in recent years I have realized, after trying many kinds, that Tea Forte is the one I enjoy most. I drink it exclusively. The quality of the tea is excellent, the website is easy to navigate, customer service is wonderful and I love being one of their customers. I like the rewards program which gives me a little discount on orders and I even get free gifts (like a Kati cup) every once in a while with their promotions. Keep doing what you're doing Tea Forte!

      Your Estate Darjeeling tea is very pleasing to the palette, but am unhappy with the new smaller-sized canisters.

      From Coffee to Tea...

      I grew up on cafe au lait; but the dairy was not helping my nasal allergies; Green tea has always been my afternoon pick up, but was struggling to find a morning tea that satisfied me enough to make the change. This is the blend that sealed the switch. Very satisfying, and no bitter after taste. I enjoy my morning tea now, and don't miss the cafe.

      My go to tea

      While the more delicate Darjeelings are appreciated this offering is my go to tea, morning or afternoon. It has a robustness which satisfies but still delivers the nuances a Darjeeling should have. It was a lucky day when I chose to use my gift certificate for this tea - I have reordered it again and again using my own funds!

      The Best Black Tea on the Market

      Our tea consumption habits have changed since we discovered Tea Forte. As a China scholar, I have sampled teas from thousand-year old plantations in China and know my green teas well, but was never able to find a satisfying black tea until I tasted Tea Forte Estate Darjeeling. While I do "spice" up the brew with select green tea from Yunnan, the richness of the Tea Forte Darjeeling is the requisite foundation. We will be long time customers of this leaf.
