Style: Black

Origin: Puttabong Estate, Darjeeling Region, India

Description: The oldest and largest in Darjeeling, Puttabong Estate covers an area of over 20 square kilometers and is traversed by the River Rangeet. The dramatic geography, with soil that is steeped in seasonal rains and nourished by the climate of the Himalayas, all contribute to the flavour of the exceptional teas that are cultivated, harvested and produced under these conditions. Unlike the other Darjeelings that we currently carry, the leaves of this Puttabong are greener, and steep to a clear light umber.

Tasting Notes: The clear, delicate steep colour and flavour of this tea makes it one of our most gentle Darjeeling teas. The classic malty linger emerges from the cup with a subdued brassy taste, carrying with it a fresh, misted floral notes and sweet honeyed scent. The tea builds in astringency in the cup during a longer steep, reaching a fresh, full and grassy flavour, but maintains a serene complexity throughout. 

Brewing Instructions: 2g per cup. 100ºC water. steep 3-5 minutes.

Certified Organic

China has a rich and ancient tradition of producing high quality teas of all varieties, and black tea is no exception. This is where tea culture and industry, as we know it, began nearly 2,000 years ago.

Known as ‘Red Tea’ in China, the tea leaves from the Camellia sinensis sinensis plant are smaller and finer than their Indian counterparts, the Camellia sinensis assamica, and prefer cooler mountainous regions. Usually plucked by hand and gently processed, the end result are exquisitely fragrant teas with lesser levels of astringency and a soft body.

Several Chinese provinces are famous for their regional tea selections: Fujian Province is home to the well-known, pine-smoked Lapsang Souchong, while Keemun tea, the official choice of the British Queen, is produced in Anhui Province. Yunnan province produces the ever-popular varieties of Yunnan black tea and is also the region where China started its tea cultivation.

The organic teas we import are artisanally farmed and crafted. They may change with each harvest season. The same tea harvested at a different time of year and processed by a different tea maker will vary slightly in flavour and finish.
