You never climb the same mountain twice, and you’ll never make the same cup of tea again. Our leaves, single origin and hand picked, vary one from the next, and slight changes in brewing elements - the amount of leaf, the temperature of water, the brewing time, even the specific pot or cup - will affect the outcome. But even more than that, you yourself will have changed, and you will appreciate each sip differently when you revisit the tea.
This Darjeeling tea comes to us from Nuxalbari Estates, at the foothills of the Himalayas. One of few woman-owned tea estates, Sonia Jabbar has made it her mission to encourage and mentor leadership in women at her company, and to preserve the natural environment and wildlife.
Full of warming clove and spice flavors, with a fruity hint common to oxidized teas, this tea’s energy is bold and empowering, for whatever you’re planning to summit today. Take some on the trail, and go climb that mountain.
