If you want to be drinking one of the best of the best, you can’t go past this Castleton Estate second flush Darjeeling. Castelton is one of the top ten estates in the Darjeeling district of Northern India and this Finest Tippy Golden Flowery Orange Pekoe is an absolute stand-out! If you know your teas, you will understand that what you have here is a very special tea indeed and worth every cent!
Produced in the Himalayas, Darjeelings are grown in the shadow of Kangchenjunga, the snowcapped mountain said to be home of the Hindu God "Shiva" -the Destroyer. Darjeeling means land of the Thunderbolt and it is in fact the weather, combined with the altitude, soil and bright sunlight that result in an incomparable beverage.
A superb any time of the day tea and excellent with milk. Oh My Goodness, will someone PLEASE put the kettle on!
Wonderful muscatel highlights with delicate strength - the hallmark of a premium 2nd flush Darjeeling.
