This organic tea was grown at very high altitudes in the Mim Darjeeling region of Northern India. Because the tea is grown at high altitudes of over 6800 feet above sea level and in relatively cool weather the bushes do not grow quickly, and as such the production is limited. The best time of the year for quality is during ‘second-flush’ (May - June).
This organic Darjeeling black tea is classified as TGFOP (Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe). Due to the superb taste and limited production of Darjeelings, these teas are quite rare. This tea was thoroughly scrutinized to ensure the highest of quality. This Darjeeling has a bold flavor and the fragrance of muscatel grapes. Many people consider the Darjeeling to be the champagne of tea. Free shipping with purchase over $60.
