ORGANIC BLACK TEA
Our Darjeeling Standard is an unusually robust version of Darjeeling which is usually renowned for its delicate flavor. The broken leaf brings a spicy edge to the traditional floral, thin body of most Darjeeling teas.
Grading: Tippy Golden Broken Orange Pekoe: a high-grade broken-leaf with a large proportion of golden tips.
- Orange Pekoe refers to the grade of leaf in this black tea.
- Broken-leaf is the leaf that has been torn or broken but is still in large enough pieces to be recognizable as pieces of leaf.
- Golden refers to the golden tip, the very end of the golden tea buds.
- Tippy tells us that most of this tea is the golden tip of the plant.
This is a broken leaf Darjeeling, which infuses color quickly when steeped. Its flavor is crisply sharp, astringent, and has a berry-like character.

Far and away the best darjeeling I've ever tried, and a much better value than on some other sites. Very unique and distinct flavor and a natural sweetness. Stands up very well to multiple infusions, rare for a darjeeling. I recommend 2-3 infusions of 1.5-2 mins.
I really like Darjeeling, much more than I expected to. This is my favorite one. It's the ideal Darjeeling to me. The sweet wine notes and subtle astringency play well together. I usually add some honey or agave to my tea, and this one needs very little. It's amazing just on its own. I'm extremely pleased with this tea!
