Organic Darjeeling OP Loose Leaf Tea.
An aromatic black tea from the Darjeeling region in West Bengal, India. Grown high in the Himalayas, the ‘champagne’ of teas is highly sought after the world over. Celebrated for their wine-like profile, thanks to a unique, musky-sweetness, Darjeelings make for a deliciously fragrant, afternoon tea.
Orange Pekoe (OP) is a classification of black tea based upon the origin of the leaf. To be classified as pekoe, the tea must be composed purely of the new flushes - a flush being the leaf bud plucked with two youngest leaves. (Any other leaves produce teas of lower quality.)
In store you can purchase loose leaf tea in your own re-usable containers or you can take it home in one of our paper bags and decant into your own container.
Purchases online will be delivered in a sealed, recyclable, paper bag and we recommend placing it in an air tight container.
