Review by Kelly
Overall Character
I'd never tried Darjeeling before, and this tea took some getting used to, but it is now one of my favorite black teas. I can drink it all day long, but I love it in the afternoon. The leaves from Margaret's Hope Estate are smooth, spicy, and rich and hold up well to milk, but the tea tastes equally delicious plain. I do not recommend sweetener of any kind.

Darjeeling

Our Darjeeling offering is grown in the high-altitude foothills of the Himalayas at the Badamtam Estate. Teas grown in this region tend to have a stimulating taste and aroma, setting them apart from other black teas. Often called the “Queen of Indian Teas”, Darjeeling is a full-bodied tea whose infused leaf produces a cup with a coppery-red sparkle and a hint of delicate fruit overtones.

Brewing Tips: Our Darjeeling should be made with cold, filtered water that has been brought to a rolling boil (205-212° F). Using one rounded teaspoon of loose tea or one teabag for each cup required, pour the boiling water over the tea leaves. Darjeeling should be steeped for 3 minutes. Once the ideal brewing time has been reached, the leaves should be removed to prevent further steeping. Decant and enjoy!


How Much Tea Do I Need?
1 pound of loose leaf tea will make approximately 160 cups of brewed tea
8 ounces of loose leaf tea will make approximately 80 cups of brewed tea
4 ounces of loose leaf tea will make approximately 40 cups of brewed tea
