An unparalleled loose leaf tea crafted at the highest elevations of the majestic
foothills of the Himalayas. This tea embodies the pinnacle of excellence in the world
of fine tea.

the sun’s first rays caressing the mountain of dawn.

Interesting Fact: You can re-infuse Tea2you’s teas two to three times (consumed within a day). Enjoy it hot or chilled, and you can add lemon. Milk is a crime to this tea as our tea has no tannin. As all wine is not good, all 1st flush Darjeeling is not good, but ours is carefully selected each harvest season to make sure it is.
