Origin: Kurseong, West Bengal, Darjeeling, India
Flavor: lilac, herbs, fruity
Darjeeling teas can be tricky - they've been around for so long, you need to represent that "classic" flavor but you still want something interesting in the cup. This first flush from the Monteviot Estate is a show-stopper. It has a light body and mild astringency with a warm, familiar flavor (fruit, Muscato grape) but what makes the cup really shine is a distinct lilac aroma and flavor.
The Monteviot Estate was established in 1856, making it one of the oldest tea gardens in Darjeeling. It is also one of the smallest and therefore specializes in producing high-grade, hand-picked teas. This estate produces organic teas and has a strong social commitment to their employees.
We offer discounts for bulk loose-leaf teas: 10% off at 10 pounds and 20% at chest quantities. A chest of Darjeeling Monteviot 1st Flush Organic contains 35 pounds of loose leaf tea. We are happy to packaged your tea in smaller bags upon request, but it will not receive a bulk discount.
