Darjeeling Himalaya Blend Second Flush Loose Leaf Quality Black Tea


  • A blended second flush assortment of medium dark sinensis leaves with some tips.
  •  Actually blended in Darjeeling rather than over here.
  • This high grade, quality tea is spicy and fully aromatic, not a common everyday tea but a delight for a special occasion. 
  • This wonderful blend produces a bronze coloured cup with a harmonious spicy flavour.
  • Generally one would have this tea black and if prepared correctly should not need milk.
  • I used water just off boiling point at 90 degrees Centigrade, you should not need to infuse for too long a time, a couple of minutes is what I usually go for, but feel free to adjust for personal preference.
  • You may wish to garnish this tea with a slice of orange, traditionally a slice of lemon was used but then sugar was added to counter the acidic taste.
  • This really is a lovely 'Afternoon Tea' and I really enjoyed this remarkably good Darjeeling.
  • Whether it's because I chose to treat it like an Oolong when brewing, or because the blending has been done using some fantastic gold and silver tips, this really is a great drink. 
  • At Gently Stirred every order is gift wrapped so if you're buying for a number of different people just add that information at checkout.
