Darjeeling Sungma Summer is a second flush black tea from the famous Darjeeling region of India. Darjeeling tea is treasured for its rich golden liquor and distinctive muscatel (a type of grape) flavor. This tea scores high on both counts. Bright and aromatic, floral muscat grape aroma with notes of warm spice and sugary squash. Plush, tangy mouthfeel with a sweet finish and balanced astringency. This excellent summer harvest (second flush) of Darjeeling black tea comes from the highly regarded Sungma Estate.

Fresh From Origin
The Himalayas are the collective ranges of mountains that separate India and the Tibetan plateau. They include several of the world’s highest mountains, including Mount Everest, and are split into several parallel ranges. Darjeeling, a region in the Indian state of West Bengal, lies in the Lower Himalayan range, where it has a clear view of Kangchenjunga, the world’s third-highest mountain. The location is also ideal for growing tea, as made clear by Darjeeling tea, which is one of the most prized teas in the world and can only be grown in that region.
