Affectionately called the "Champagne of Teas", Darjeeling tea hails from the foothills of the Himalayas where the steeper slopes begin. At 6,600 feet, the growing climate is distinctly different from those of other areas of India or even china. The temperatures here are cooler but the sunshine and rain plentiful. Some say the higher elevations makes the sun more intense, but there is no science to back this up.

The soil here is minerally and drains well and is perfect for growing tea. Soil and sun are strong determiners of the quality of the tea leaves which give this tea a unique muscatel wine flavor which has been prized by European tea drinkers for centuries. It is perhaps the worlds best know black tea.
Our tea is graded TGFOP which stands for Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe. The simple rule to understanding this arcane grading is - the more letters the better. Most store bought teas in bags are OP or Orange Pekoe.
Additionally, our tea is certified organic.
