  • Grown in 87 gardens in the foothills of the Himalayas in Darjeeling in West Bengal state. Some of the bushes are as old as 150 years and were introduced to the region by a Scottish surgeon.

    The harvesting season in Darjeeling extends to roughly a little over seven months – from March to October. It is also divided into four distinct seasons called “flushes”. This first flush (harvest) has the sweet flowery taste of the tea garden.

  • About Black Tea

    Black Tea, like white and green tea, is made from the plant “Camellia sinensis”, and after picking the leaves are dried and then undergo oxidation, where enzymes are released that change the color and flavor of the leaves. Black teas take on a reddish to brownish hue when brewed. The flavours of black tea are more pronounced and fuller, and can include profiles like roasted, tannic, smooth, or biting.
