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.

      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!

      Darjeeling for the initiated

      Finding a decent Darjeeling can be an exhausted task, as some are chemically processed and ruin the delicate flavor that distinguishes Darjeeling. You can tell teafortes’s buyers went out of their way to find the purest ingredients for this tea.

      subtle but refreshing

      This tea is milder than English Breakfast or Earl Grey, but it lighter notes provides a deeply satisfying cup of tea.

      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!
