Darjeeling tea is one of the most unique teas in the world. While it is grown in India, the plants themselves are actually of the smaller-leafed Chinese sinensis tea variety rather than the Indian assamica variety. Likewise, while it is most often marketed as a black tea, its processing often results in a tea that is a hybrid between black and oolong, though oolong, green, and white teas are also available. Grown in a region with cooler temperatures and slower growing times, it is harvested multiple times a year and accounts for 7% of the tea grown in India.
