Our Darjeeling is a 2nd flush from the Balasun Estate. The garden lies at an elevation of 400-1350 meters. This high elevation helps to create well -defined or clear notes in the tea. We selected this lot as it offers lively taste characteristics. The initial notes are smooth and flowery, passing into a more pungent feel on the tongue. There is a well-crafted tension between leaf astringency and "muscatel" flavors.  Note how it will linger. The leaves cup to a rich, yellow-golden color.

    Delicious black tea.

    Darjeeling is one of my favorite black teas, but not all are of the same quality. Silk Road's Darjeeling is flavorful with a nice balance of smoothness and astringency.

    A great all around black tea.

    This is a pleasing tea. I like it with a bit of honey (Locally sourced from here in Arizona). If you like iced tea this is also a great choice.
