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.

      #1 favorite

      This is my all time personal favorite of any brand of tea. So smooth. It even smells good in the pyramid before brewing.

      Beautiful flavors

      Fragrant and nutty. Less tannins than the classic black tea and flavorful.

      Classic black tea

      I like to start my morning with some simple black tea like Estate Darjeeling. I have gone through several of the flavored teas but always seem to come back to these simpler flavors. It’s something I look forward to in the morning - a cup of tea and a little “down time”.

      Would rate it below Earl Grey and English Breakfast among the black teas but still a very satisfying option.
