Darjeeling is an exquisite tea from the enchanting tea gardens, nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas.
This Darjeelig tea produces a deep golden infusion with a light malty taste and a gentle floral aroma of warm spice.
We generously fill each bag with quality un-ground ingredients, making for a satisfying full flavoured brew each and every time.

Ingredients: Darjeeling Tea Leaves
20 x 100% plastic free tea bags.
How to brew the perfect cuppa:
To enjoy this tea at its best, always use freshly drawn and boiled water. (to help the planet, only boil the amount of water you need to save water and energy)
Take a moment to warm the pot or mug.
Use 1 tea bag per person and pour the freshly boiled water (100°C) over the tea bag.
Steep for 3-5 minutes, allowing the leaves to unfurl and release their full flavours.
For a perfect brew do not add the milk until the tea is ready, as the milk fats will block the filter paper and stop the tea leaves from delivering their full flavour.
Once the tea has brewed to your liking, add milk/sweeten or go natural.
You decide, it’s your cuppa!
Take time out and enjoy!
Refreshing iced tea:
Use 1 tea bag per person, 125ml of freshly boiled water and brew for 5 minutes.
Sweeten to your liking and top up with 125ml of cold water. Serve over ice with slices of lemon.
As the planet means so much to us, in 2018 we took the leap to be one of Britain’s first 100% plastic free tea companies.
Not only were our tea bags made from corn starch (and still are), so no nasty plastics in your cup, we also started packing our tea bags in a film made from fast growing eucalyptus tree cellulose, so no nasty plastic in landfill neither. Then not stopping there, we went through a change of packaging, utilising vegetable inks printed onto our tea boxes, closing the whole circle making it all kind to the planet!!
