Darjeeling Makaibari Spring

Origin:  India

Description:    This tea comes from one of the last family-owned tea estates in Darjeeling, India. The Makaibari estate in the Darjeeling hills of Northeastern India is home to the finest high grown Darjeeling teas and leader of biodynamic and organic permaculture. This high altitude tea is grown on picturesque steep slopes up to 4000 ft, surrounded by fresh air and pure mountain spring water. Our select high grown tea is hand picked, artisan processed and provides a bright and brisk cup much lighter than other black teas because of its high altitude. This “champagne of teas” is a first flush tea which brews a pink, light amber color, fresh floral and apple like character, with a slightly astringent finish. It serves better when brewed at a cooler temperature of 180F. It is rare to experience a pure 100% Darjeeling outside of India. This is your passport to experience this rare and golden opportunity of a truly prized luxury. 212° 1 level teaspoon tea per 8 ounces water; steep for 3-5 minutes. Organic, biodynamic, fair trade and single-estate.

Price per 1 oz. ~ $4.25
