High in the mountains, deep in the mists that surround the Himalayas is Darjeeling, "Queen of Teas." This Darjeeling tea is a blend of First Flush and Autumnal teas from the best gardens. The mixture yields a light color in the cup with a fragrant "nose." It is a great value.
Small green leaves can be found in this Darjeeling blend (hard withered green flakes) along with larger brown leaves.
