Our premium First Flush Darjeeling is flown directly from the tea gardens of India to the Tea Total warehouse, this Darjeeling has a tantalizing flower bouquet and ripe fruits aromas with a distinctive mellowness.
Sourced from the "Namring" tea estate which started back in 1855 by British planters, this estate is divided into three smaller tea estates, Namring, Jinglam & Poomong. The "Namring Upper Estate" produces the most premium quality Darjeeling from the highest altitude stretching up to the Tiger Hills, with an incredible viewpoint over the Himalayan region. The three plantations are located between 1000 and 2500 metres high and stretches along 440 hectares.
This estate is known to produce some very rare Darjeeling teas.
Every year we select from different samples, searching for the tea that most closely matches our taste requirements, a tea we're confident you'll enjoy.
Darjeeling is often called the "champagne" of tea.Location: West Bengal Region, India. In between Nepal and Bhutan borders.
