This black tea was grown in the foothills of the Himalayas in Darjeeling, India. Harvested in the summer to develop its unique Darjeeling muscatel flavour, the tea has notes of mandarin, ginger and wood spice and gentle, dry tannins.

Pairs well with grilled meats or lasagne

Darjeeling is a town situated on the slopes of the Himalayas and has some of the highest tea gardens in the world. At almost 2,000 metres above sea level, the tea leaves grow more slowly which, along with the region’s loamy soil and pure mountain air, develops a unique muscatel flavour, redolent of muscat grapes.

Darjeeling is often referred to as the “Champagne of teas” due to its deep fruity and floral flavour. There are four periods of cultivation (or flushes) every year, which each have unique characteristics. This particular tea is hand-picked in the summer when the muscatel flavour is at its most pronounced.

"This drink was so food friendly. It worked well with charcuterie, it was lovely with chicken tagine, it also tasted great with lasagne. Every time the drink was refreshing and delicate enough not to clash with any of the ingredients or flavours from the food and had these lovely peach and orange fruity notes but with a refreshing not savoury but also not sweet finish. It also worked with chocolate, where it tasted quite malty and caramelly."
