About The Tea

This finest quality tea was awarded the prestigious two-star ranking at the 2016 Guild of Fine Food’s Great Taste Awards.

Our exquisite Luxury Darjeeling First Flush Tea Triunes, delicately combine the fresh, invigorating and grassy qualities of the revered spring flush tea leaves with the stunning muscatel hints that are characteristic of this well-loved and nuanced tea. Darjeeling is one of the most revered and well-loved tea districts in India - and in the world. Tea farmers in this area have been passing down expert tea knowledge from generation to generation for almost 200 years.

This beautifully balanced black tea imparts a bright and clear amber liquor and a light and invigorating flavour with fruity, floral notes. The succulent, silvery leaves offer a gentle sweetness and refreshingly astringent flavour, which can be enjoyed at any time of the day.

Information for tea connoisseurs

Unlike most Indian teas, Darjeeling tea is normally made from the small-leaved Chinese variety of Camellia Sinensis, rather than the large-leaved Assam plant, Camellia Sinensis Assamica. Tea planting in the Indian district of Darjeeling was introduced in 1841 by Arthur Campbell, a civil surgeon of the Indian Medical Service. Campbell was transferred to Darjeeling in 1839 from Kathmandu, Nepal. In 1841, he brought seeds of the Chinese tea plant, Camellia Sinensis from Kumaun and began to experiment with tea planting in Darjeeling. The British government also established tea nurseries during that period. Commercial development began during the 1850s.

Excellent first lush tea bags
Monday, 9 April 2018  |  Clive

For a long time I've been ordering loose leaf Darjeeling - First and Second Flush form various estates. This is the first time I've got a a blend and tea bags. I should have done it before. The blend is lovely and the big, airy tea bags so much easier to user than a tea pot. I don't have a fine enough palette to taste the difference. The resealable bags containing 125 teabags each are sturdy and very well thought out. Great product and service.

An acceptable teabag
Monday, 28 August 2017  |  Keith

Being fairly fussy about the tea I drink, preferring leaf tea and regretting the nastiness of teabags in general it was some apprehension that I purchassed your triemes to take on holiday with me. We were very pleasantly surprised; the brew had a good taste almost up to leaf tea quality. great!
