Organic Darjeeling Loose Tea
Strong but sensitive — we like that in a tea. Our Darjeeling tea has light, but rich, body with floral overtones.
This is a lovely blend of first and second flush Darjeeling tea. What's a "flush"? Darjeeling, India sits in the high foothills of the Himalaya. It gets cold enough there that tea stops growing in the Fall. In the Spring, the first growth is called the First Flush. First Flush Darjeelings are prized the world over - they are very, very light in color but can have exquisite flavor that varies with every day’s harvest. The 2nd flush is slightly darker and bolder.
- Use 15oz filtered water per 1.5 tsp tea.
- Pour boiling water (212°F) over tea in infuser.
- Steep 4 minutes.
So are we. We pluck only the freshest and tastiest part of the tea plant – the top two leaves and a bud. We start with the best tea from top-quality organic gardens and blend only with natural flavors to deliver a rich, real tea experience in our easy-to-use, plant-based, compostable eco-sachets. From plant to compost, we’re committed to great organic tea that is easy to brew and light on the planet.
So put the kettle on, grab your favorite mug, and embrace your inner tea nerd.
Our boxes of tea and everything in them are either recyclable or compostable. Our pyramid tea sachets and wrap are made with what may look like plastic but is actually Polylactic acid (PLA). PLA is plant-based, petroleum-free, and is certified compostable. Often, our sachets and wraps are backyard compostable, but as composting conditions can vary, you can always look for a commercial composting facility in your area.
