This Organic Fair Trade tea is grown at 6,000 feet on the Indo-Nepal border in the Mirik Valley of Darjeeling, India's magical mountain of 87 tea gardens. On a clear day, you can see Mt. Everest from the Selimbong estate. This well-made tea will only get better with time so keep it in a tight container and taste it over a couple of years. Bruce Richardson suggests steeping at 200°F (off boil) for 3 minutes; then try a second steeping.
I always look forward to First Flush!

I always look forward to First Flush Darjeelings this time of year and this is one of my favorites - light, full of bouquet. I love to share it with my friends.
