Our Darjeeling is a 2nd flush from the Singbulli Estate. This Organic estate is located in Mirik town, an area now defining itself as the Muscatel Valley. The garden lies at an elevation of 400-1350 meters. This high elevation helps to create well -defined or clear notes in the tea. We selected this lot as it offers lively taste characteristics. The initial notes are smooth and flowery, passing into a more pungent feel on the tongue. There is a well-crafted tension between leaf astringency and "muscatel" flavors. Note how it will linger. The leaves cup to a rich, yellow-golden color. Lot # 240

Supporting adults with disabilities
Silk Road Teas is more than just tea. We are committed to giving back to our community by providing jobs packaging our teas to disabled adults. As the older brother of a disabled person, Ned Heagerty, Silk Road Teas President, recognized the challenges and limited opportunities disabled adults face. So he wanted to make a difference. It is a small step, but it is an action we believe in and will continue to follow. Recently, we were honored by receiving the Employer of the Year Award from Integrated Community Services (ICS) for our commitment to employ persons with disabilities.
Selected by the finest shops and restaurants
Our award-winning teas are proudly served at these and other fine restaurants, stores and tea shops.
