Grown amidst ancient forests at the foothills of the Himalayas, our Darjeeling green tea is revered as a herb.
This green tea was first developed in 2004 when Gyokuro Sensi Tokishaku Yamashita visited us in the Himalayas. This tea finds devoted connoisseurs in Japan, even though the country itself produces some of the finest Darjeeling Makaibari green teas in the world. Its unique balance of sweetness and astringency with notes of fresh corn, make it a favourite amongst tea drinkers in Tokyo. It is high in Orac values and may be taken through the day.
Tasting Notes: Delicate & fresh, earthy with hints of rice, corn.
Grade: Darjeeling Green Tea (FTGFOP1S)
Makaibari Estate: The iconic Makaibari estate in Darjeeling produces exceptional green tea. Select leaves are plucked from chosen organic tea bushes between June to November and delicately processed with no oxidation. The emerald green dry leaves with flecks of white tips are rich in antioxidants and possess strong revitalizing properties. The cup is a taste of the surrounding forest on dewy mornings - a clear brew which is fresh and lively on the palate.
Finely twisted, emerald coloured whole leaf Assam green tea from our sprawling and renowned Kenduguri Tea Estate.
Kenduguri is synonymous with green tea, so much so that even the produce from other estates is referred to by the locals in Punjab as Kenduguri. The estate owes its cult status to the father-son duo Raja Singh & Kalyan Singh who under the patronage of the British governor in the province helped cement the popularity of Assam green tea. It is still widely loved by connoisseurs in the region.
