Darjeeling Black Tea from The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf has a lively full-bodied yet light and delicate taste and a fragrant aroma. Darjeeling teas are sometimes referred to as the champagne of teas. Located in Northeastern India, the Darjeeling tea region is situated in altitudes of more than 6,000 feet with breathtaking views of the Himalayan mountains. The combination of the moist cool climate, the rich soil, the frequent rainfall and the gradually sloping terrain gives Darjeeling tea its famous unique flavor. Darjeeling teas have a very limited harvest, making this tea one of the finest in the world. This item includes 20 tea bags in a gift-worthy tin canister.
