|Description:|| Darjeeling is a picturesque tea growing area in Northern India.
From the town center on a clear day the peak of Mount Everest can
be seen. The genus of the Darjeeling tea bush is the Chinese Jat
which gives it the distinctive muscatel character. Because the
tea is grown at such high altitudes and in relatively cool
weather the bushes do not grow quickly, and as such the
production is limited. The best time of the year for quality is
during `second-flush' (end May - end June). During this time
Darjeelings are incomparable to any other tea in the world. The
fragrance and taste is a complex bouquet that reaches right out
of the cup. Some would describe the taste as nutty; others find
it reminds them of black currants, but most often it is described
as similar to the taste and fragrance of muscat grapes.
We thoroughly scrutinize our decaffeinated teas to ensure that they stand up to Canadian Quality specifications. All of our decaffs are processed using the C02 Process. The advantage of this decaffeination process is that no chemical solvents are used to remove the caffeine. Using the naturally occurring C02 in a circulation process; which carefully uses high pressure and temperature to extract the caffeine, the origin distinct character of the tea is retained in the cup. There is a slight change in the character of the tea due to the process but the end result is an uncompromising cup of tea with no chemical overtones.
Listed price is for a 2 ounce serving.
