Simpson & Vail - Darjeeling - Organic Earl Grey, Black Tea
Internationally renowned Darjeeling teas come to us from the area in and around Darjeeling, a Himalayan town in the state of West Bengal in eastern India. The soil and climatic conditions that exist here create teas that are treasured for their exquisite taste. Often referred to as the "Champagne of teas", Darjeeling teas are so prized that the government there created a special logo that certifies that the teas bearing this logo were actually grown in this beautiful mountain terrain. These teas have a complex and delicate flavor that marries well with custard, eggs, grilled fish, curries and fresh fruit.
The Ambootia Estate, established in 1861, currently produces all of their teas using organic and bio-dynamic farming practices. We use their Premium Darjeeling (which is a blend of their 2nd flush and Autumnal teas) and add natural bergamot oil. The resulting cup has the distinctive citrus characteristics of a classic Earl Grey tea along with the underlying delicate Darjeeling taste.
