Delicate Dreams of Darjeeling
Rare and elegant black tea from Darjeeling with complex flavor profile and delicate personality.
Darjeeling Black Tea
Darjeeling black tea is not your regular breakfast tea, although you can drink it in the morning as well. Darjeeling tea is not to be drunk in a rush, but to be enjoyed slowly, with every steep and sip, discovering hidden layers of its exquisite leaf. This tea has a beautiful flavour profile, elegance, and personality. Take your time to enjoy all the hidden layers and discover why is it called the champagne of Indian black teas. Light yet very expressive flowery notes with sweet ripe fruit taste, and just the right touch of faint astringency to round-up the sweetness in a brew that is hand-crafted for pure enjoyment.
This rare black tea has been made from tea leaves grown in Pasabong village near Kalimpong at an altitude of 2000 meters without using any chemical fertilizers or pesticides for several decades. Leaves have been processed by the small farmers in the same village in micro-tea processing units, but with great passion and love.
Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe (TGFOP)
Rich, sweet, smoky, and perfect black tea flavour.
Serenity for the mind and invigorating for the body.
- Water temperature: 85-90º Celsius
- Dosage: 2.5-5 grams of tea
- Amount of water: 150-200 ml
- Re-steeping: 2-3 times
- Steeping time: 2, 2.5, 3 minutes
Use fresh filtered water, bring it to heat, and let it cool down for a minute. Preheat your teapot and use approximately 3-4 grams of tea per 200-300 ml of water. Let it steep for 2-3 minutes. To discover delicate subtleness of each tea always follow the instructions, and feel free to experiment with dosage, time, or temperature when you get accustomed to tea. Higher temperatures, larger amounts of leaves, and longer steeping time will result in the stronger tea with more astringency. You can add sugar, lemon, or milk to your tea.
Any time you need a cup of elegance with a delicate personality to invigorate you.
