TeaSource Darjeeling | Black Tea
Dark and full-bodied 2nd Flush Darjeeling. A strong cup, but little astringency and a slight chocolate tone underneath. Sweet and woodsy in the aftertaste. A perfect everyday tea.
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).
