Nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas, this region produces high quality delicate leaves. These vintage leaves are stored during the picking season to allow them to produce a richer, more multifaceted aromatic flavour.
From the master
Darjeeling is in an area in the state of West Bengal which is at the North East of India in the foothills of the Himalayas. Vintage tea is a combination of 1stflush leaves which have been stored and then mixed with leaves from later flushes. The result is a dense and more developed flavour.
Whole leaf Darjeeling tea, lots of green still evident.
