DetailsA pure Second Flush leaf tea from the most famous tea gardens of Darjeeling, grown at 10,000 feet at the base of the Himalayas. The Second Flush harvest in early June yields the best tea. After the harsh Himalayan winter the tea enjoys the warm sun and sufficient humidity to give this Darjeeling its unparalleled taste.
Only the top two leaves and the bud from each tea branch are plucked -the leaves with the most delicate taste. Look closely and you can see the golden tips of the leaves. This tea is entirely hand-plucked – only perfect leaves are collected. This careful selection ensures the premium quality of this Darjeeling Premier Cru.
Put tea bag into a cup and add freshly boiled water. Steeping time 3-5 minutes.
