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.

      All time Favorite

      Estate Darjeeling is the finest black tea ever! I have started using it for iced tea also and it is wonderful! So very glad it is available in one pound pouches.

      Love this tea!

      I am a repeat customer and I love the Estate Darjeeling tea, it is my favorite. It has such intense flavor it doesn't need any sweetener. The only down side is when you get to the bottom of the bag the tea is so fine it slips thru most infusers but I remedy this by purchasing a new steel infuser with very fine openings and problem solved. Will purchase again!
