Aroma Darjeeling F.O.P.
Darjeeling is a town in West Bengal India. This tea is known as the ‘Champagne of Teas’ as there is nothing quite like it. It has a distinctive muscatel flavour that is achieved with the right climate, elevation, bush variety, soil and even the air the bushes breath. This grade is the large leaf which takes longer to brew which produces a light colour and elegant flavour.
Because Darjeeling tea is only grown in small quantities, it commands high prices at the Tea Auctions around the world and it is India’s first GI (Geographical Indication) product. The seeds were originally brought over from Kumaun which were of the Chinese plant variety. Recent conflict in the area has made Darjeeling hard to get hold of and therefore caused high prices.
