darjeeling puttabong summer

darjeeling puttabong summer

Black tea from the famous Darjeeling region of India. This summer harvest tea comes to us from one of our favorites, Puttabong Estate. These tea gardens are some of the highest in the world, at 6000 feet above sea level. At these high altitudes, the tea leaves grow more slowly, and have more time to develop their unique Darjeeling flavor. This one has sweet, white grape or dessert wine fragrance, slightly earthy, and smooth, sweet-tangy flavor with a more gentle astringency than typical for these teas.

Steep at 212° for 3-5 minutes.

fresh from origin

Darjeeling is a town situated along the slopes of the beautiful, towering Himalayas. The town, and the tea plantations that stretch around it, are often enveloped in mist. This unique climate, along with the region's loamy soil, help produce one of the most unique and distinctive teas in the world. These altitudes place significant strain on the bushes, so they grow more slowly and have more time to develop flavor. The leaves are also more fragile, so they oxidize and dry up at different rates during production. That's why Darjeeling tea always 'looks like Fall' - brown, gold, green. No one else in the world has tea that tastes quite like authentic Darjeeling.
