TeaSource Darjeeling | Black Tea
Description: A great Darjeeling to drink every day, all day. This 2nd flush is medium-bodied and smooth with hints of muscatel and sweet briskness. A great intro to Darjeelings.
This is our house blend of Darjeeling black tea. We strive to ensure it is consistent year to year. It is always a blend of 2nd flush Darjeeling teas, but we may source the tea from different tea gardens each year in order to achieve the same flavor profile.
Darjeelings are known as the “Champagne of Teas” and are prized for their fresh taste and delicate nuances of flavor with some astringency. 2nd flush Darjeelings, like TeaSource Darjeeling, tend to have a little more body and more pronounced muscatel notes (dark fruits like grapes and raisins).
