WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT TEA?

Lets start with DARJEELING!
Darjeeling Black tea derives its name from the Darjeeling District of Northern India, high in the Himalayan Mountain Range,where this tea is grown.  The characteristic climate prevailing at these high altitudes are perfect for the growth and production of a truly mellow and rare tea.
The growth cycle of the tea plant is a very short period (2-3 weeks).
Darjeeling is a fully fermented tea. The process of fermentation is mechanically induced and very carefully controlled. This controlled process of fermentation, is a combination of firing and then  careful selection of top quality leaf that gives the delightful bouquet and distinct winey flavor to Darjeeling tea!
