About this tea

Set high in the Himalayas, Darjeeling is regarded as the “Champagne of Tea” due to its one of a kind terroir. Each garden and slope section in Darjeeling carries its own signature terroir, fragrance and flavor characteristics. While cultivar selection is a factor, the real complexity of Darjeeling teas is to be explored in terms of the terroir. The differences of elevation, the grade of the slope and the amount of sun exposure lead to distinctive differences in character.

The character of the tea from the Chamong gardens is very unique and evokes flavors of stone fruits like peach and nectarine, as well as apple blossom and Muscat grape. The eagerly anticipated first flush harvest in March-April produces teas with vivacious energy and flavors that capture the essence of spring and this amazing tea region.
