Description

Himalayan Darjeeling Black Tea is one of the most revered of tea blends. Known as the ‘champagne’ of tea, every cup offers the sensation of exclusivity and elegance, with the leaves grown in the shade of the magnificent Darjeeling mountain range in the Himalayas.
As befitting tea leaves grown and cultivated in such a special place, our Himalayan Darjeeling Black Tea offers a fragrant and elegant flavor that’s dignified and highly refreshing. To match the rich flavor of this magnificent tea is its delightful fragrance. Breathe it in then close your eyes and you’ll be transported to the beautiful plateaus in the foothills of the Darjeeling mountains.

Whether brewed alone or added to a pot shared with friends, our Himalayan Darjeeling Black tea can bring a sense of luxury into your day and sense of elegance beyond what you normally expect to find in a teacup. We guarantee that this magnificent tea will impress even the most worldly of tea aficionados.

BREWING INSTRUCTION:

 

THE WATER TEMPERATURE

  • The golden rule about water temperature is never to use boiling water on the tea, whatever kind of tea you are making.
  • Green Teas require water at 70°C and black teas require water at 85-90°C.
  • These days you can get kettles which enable you to choose your water temperature.

 

THE AMOUNT OF TEA

  • Custom dictates that 4 grams are sufficient for one cup. But the amount is partly a matter of preference.
  • In the case of Assam tea, which is naturally very robust, you might want to reduce the strength and brew 3 grams instead of 4.

 

THE BREWING TIME

  • This is a very important step in the art of tea-making. In fact, the brewing time varies depending on the type of tea. An over-brewed black tea will develop a bitter taste whilst an under-brewed white tea will be flat and insipid.
  • Black teas are normally brewed for 2-3 minutes, green teas for 3 – 4 minutes. It is a good idea to check the brewing time before making the tea because some teas need to be infused for very specific times: for example, Jade Pearl is left to infuse for 7 – 20 minutes, whilst Oolong tea will need 5 – 7 minutes for its bouquet to develop fully.
  • Brewing is normally done with a lid on so that the tea retains all its aromas.
