Darjeeling Loose Leaf Tea bag

Grown with care only in the foothills of the Himalayas in the Darjeeling region of India, this light, golden colored, loose-leaf, black tea is prized for it's gently sweet, muscatel flavor. Savor it simply 'as is,' no additions needed.
Black Tea
The quality of water used as an impact on the quality of the tea. Always use freshly drawn water or filtered water. Heat water to the recommended temperature using an electric hot water heater or a stove top kettle.

Heat fresh water to rolling boil or to a temperature of 212F.

Loose Leaf
Use the infuser of your choice. Measure 1 teaspoon of tea per person. For a stronger brew preference, add an additional teaspoon for the pot.

Infusion Time Once the water reaches the appropriate temperature, it should be poured immediately over the tea leaves. Keep the teapot covered to retain heat. Time steeping carefully and infuse for 7-10 minutes. When the tea is done steeping, immediately remove the tea and lightly stir.
This black tea has more caffeine than teas in our green tea range. It's important to keep in mind that brew time accounts for the primary influence over a tea's caffeine content.

    aromatically representative Darjeeling
    By Holly W. on December 8, 2019

    This tea is deliciously aromatic, making a perfect cup served black with white sugar, for a classic taste, or blended 50-50 with Ahmad's Imperial Blend and served with milk and unrefined cane sugar, for a richly caramel flavor.

    Most delicious tea on earth!

    I have been a huge fan of your aromatic Earl Grey tea for many years. However we could not find it in the stores for some time and then accidentally we tried your Darjeeling tea. Oh my! This is the most delicious and first quality tea we have tasted. I wish we could find it in stores easily. I will chase and buy it when it is available to purchase.

    Love Darjeeling
    By Shelly T. on July 26, 2019

    This is my favorite tea of all time, with Special Blend as a runner up. I, too, wish it came in the larger container. I had a larger one and appreciated that I didn't have to go through so many small containers. I have purchased other brands, as a result, just to avoid the necessity of recycling so many small containers.

    Delicious, smooth, hearty black tea. Strong enough to hold up with sugar and/or cream, delicious by itself in a cup. My only quibble is that it is only available in the small (100g) tins, rather than the larger the Assams are available in.

    A wonderful tea!
    By Linda on March 12, 2019

    I have never drunk Darjeeling tea before. I decided to try this tea from Ahmad Tea and I'm so glad I did. It's such a wonderful black tea flavor without being too strong. I find myself drinking it at any time of day. I will order other teas from this company in the future.

    I buy this tea by the case because it is simply the best, most flavorful Darjeeling I can find. I hope it comes back in stock soon.
