Twinings Pure Darjeeling Leaf Tea 125G
Sorry, this product is currently unavailable
Delicate & intriguing
It's an amazing journey...
Down through the Himalayas from Darjeeling on what looks like an antique toy train. Carrying its special cargo of tea, the tiny steam train winds its way around hills, through valleys.
The tea is special because the growing conditions at high altitude give it a delicate and fresh taste and a shimmering gold colour. We love to drink it when there's an occasion but we think tea drinking's an occasion anyway.
As the Darjeeling winter bids farewell and the last of the snow disappears from the peaks, this Golden Valleys' tea bushes burst into life. We choose first and second flush teas as they are the best of the season and give a unique, flowery Darjeeling character. Our master blenders pick and blend from only the best, small scale tea gardens, which guarantee excellent hand picking of just the bud and top leaf from bushes which are often over 100 years old.
The journey from the tea garden to your cup...
When it comes to tea we're a little different from everybody else. The way we buy and blend is unique; we choose from more origins than anyone else and have a master blender dedicated to each of these locations. What they don't know about their tea gardens and where to find the best quality, isn't worth knowing. It is said that 7 is a lucky number, for us it's the number of times the master blenders taste each batch to make sure that the quality from its exotic origin reaches your cup.
