Tea connoisseurs, you can’t have a tea experience without trying Darjeeling Tea. Darjeeling teas must be made in West Bengal, India.
What makes Darjeeling tea unique?
Darjeeling Tea has been the only tea to be granted protection under the Geographical Indications (GI) trademark. These teas are said to be the highest-altitude teas in the world and the ideal climate for tea plants. The teas are infused with a unique muscatel flavor and aroma.
Only 11,000 tonnes of Darjeeling tea are produced annually from Darjeeling’s official region. This is because Darjeeling tea is only grown in selected tea plantations in the Himalayas foothills. This accounts for around 1% of India’s total tea production. A famous tea producer, John Lasseter, once said that quality is the best business plan. This is true for Darjeeling tea.
Darjeeling tea is distinguished because it is still made in the traditional Orthodox way, despite the advent of mechanization in almost all manufacturing and packaging processes. This means the teas are hand-cultivated and made with great care and experience in handling and manufacturing Pure Darjeeling Tea leaves.
Darjeeling teas can only be purchased for a limited time because they are seasonally harvested. The spring rains bring about the first flush in March. This black tea has a lot of silvery tips, a light color, a mild aroma, and mild astringency. The second flush is made up of leaves harvested in the second harvest, which occurs in June. They produce an amber-colored, full-bodied cup. This black tea is well-known for being one of the best black teas in the world. Its flavor develops as the sun shines brighter during the summer.
