NEW MIGHTY LEAF TEAS FROM DARJEELING

TEAS FROM DARJEELING

In the fall of 2007, Gary and Jill traveled to the Darjeeling region of Northeast India to source new teas for Mighty Leaf from the Okayti tea estate. Often called the "Champagne of Teas," the finest and highly sought after Darjeeling teas hail from this mountainous region nestled near the Himalayas.
 
The tea's flavor varies with the seasons or harvest periods. Farmers harvest Darjeeling four times a year during what are called the First flush, Second flush, Rains flush and Autumn flush.
