Deepali's Terroir: Organic Second Flush Darjeeling - Pyramid Bags


Collections: Black Teas

Type: Black Tea



Ah, the champagne of teas, now in a pyramid bag - perfect!

A delicious, award-winning, 'broken leaf' Darjeeling with all the classic qualities of a great tea from the region aptly named the 'champagne of teas'.  The leaves are chopped to size in order to give the appropriate balance between sweet, aromatic flavours, and the fresh dryness beloved of afficionados of Darjeeling.

Deepali has selected this tea from a particular field, to bring out some lovely honey, caramel and hay notes on the nose, with a rounded smooth cup which coats the mouth delightfully, leaving a long-lasting flavour atop a comfortable dryness.  A copper-gold liquor sure to delight.

And the best bit?  It comes in a pyramid bag so you can brew this delicacy conveniently wherever you go.  Available as a pouch of 20 teabags for use at home; or as a box of individually enveloped bags, perfect for travel.

 

Preparation

Boil the water; let stand for about 2 minutes.  Add the hot water to the pot, and one pyramid per cup.  Let the leaves steep for about 5 minutes then gently stir and pour the tea into cup.  

The subtle flavour is best appreciated on its own.  Take care not to over-brew or add too much tea, to get the best flavour.

 

About Deepali's Darjeeling

Darjeeling is picked by experts, taking just the bud and the youngest leaf.

Whenever we select teas from around the world, we rely in part on experts knowledgeable about particular terroirs to point us in the right direction.

Bath resident Deepali Gaskell really knows her Darjeeling. When she showed us samples of the teas she had selected, we were keen to join forces.

Deepali Gaskell, our Darjeeling Expert

Her passion for the fine teas from that region was inspiring. Deepali says "Darjeeling teas have so much character. Their varied flavours, from estate to estate, and from picking to picking, ensure there is a Darjeeling for every occasion."

Deepali's teas are sourced from organic estates working within Demeter's Biodynamic regime, ensuring that nasty chemicals won't spoil your drink. For every 1kg of final product, 22,000 buds must be picked, by hand and using just the ball of the index finger and thumb.  It is a true testament to the producer's commitment to quality.

Black and green teas score highly on the ORAC Scale, which measures Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity, the antioxidant capacity of foods.
