Our Indian Darjeeling Black Tea has a light-to-medium body with a delicate, yet assertive unique floral aroma. It is sometimes called the "Champagne of Tea." It can be enjoyed on its own as well as alongside rich, oily foods, tea cakes, and desserts. Consume in the morning or early-afternoon, as it contains a small amount of caffeine.
Our Darjeeling Green Tea is made from the same leaves as Black Darjeeling, but with higher antioxidant properties and a lighter more delicate, vegetal flavor. It cane be enjoyed on its own, as well as alongside light desserts, fish, rice, and cheeses. Consume in the morning or early-afternoon, as it contains a small amount of caffeine.
Darjeeling tea grows at the foothills of the Himalayas in the city of Darjeeling in West Bengal, India. Like Champagne which can’t be labeled “Champagne” unless the grapes come from the Champagne region of France, Darjeeling can’t be labeled “Darjeeling” if the tea doesn’t come from the area. For this reason, it’s often referred to as “Champagne of Teas”.
Although actually a Chinese tea plant, Darjeeling is best suited for growing in higher elevations (up to 4,000 feet above sea level) where the soil is slightly more acidic and weather conditions are ideal for growing excellent tea.
Darjeeling can be grown as black, green, or white teas. Darjeeling Black Tea is almost always less oxidized and less astringent than typical varieties of black tea. Its flavor is gentle and lighter, yet deeper and more complex than green tea varieties. In fact, Darjeeling’s exceptional flavor is due to the melding of the Chinese tea plant into the natural environment of Darjeeling, India. Its flavor can change depending on when the plant is harvested, the soil and weather and other natural environmental conditions. Regardless, you’ll find this tea truly exceptional. It is peacefully delicious, calming and soothing.
Use filtered water for the best taste and quality of tea. Use one teaspoon per 8 oz of water, as needed. Pour boiling water over tea and steep for at least 4 minutes. Strain leaves, if desired, before serving. Enjoy as is, or with lemon, honey, milk or cream - whatever delights you.

Hi! I'm Sandeep.
I travel to India, Asia, South America, and Europe to bring you back some of the most pristine, pure, organic clean ingredients in the world. All the products you'll find here at Pure Indian Foods are ones that me and my family use personally.
My family has been making ghee since 1889. Today, my wife, Nalini (aka "The Ghee Lady"), carries on this tradition. She still makes all the ghee and tightens every jar by hand.
We are passionate about bringing you traditional and nourishing foods. It's our labor of love and service to human-kind. Thank you for supporting our small family business.
