Perfection

I live in the desert and Bungalow is wonderful hot or cold, but mostly I love the aroma when I take the spent leaves out of my tea pot. It's hard for me to discard them, as the lightness and black tea-ness of Bungalow are beyond any loose black tea I have purchased....much better than Fortnum and Mason. I love the color, or a light amber and I never tire or seek another blend! Thank you Steven Smith.

Sophisticated Black Tea

I love Bungalow. A Darjeeling blend of black tea that’s light yet full of complex flavor. It’s the best.

spring and fall flush

I in Paris would get the early and late flush teas from one of the finest tea stores in the world. Could not find equivalent in the U.S. till Smith. IS a nice full flavorful tea.

Nice afternoon tea

Gotta confess that Portland Breakfast Tea is my jam. For a black tea change, Bungalow was very enjoyable. I'd buy it again.

1st Flush Darjeeling

Indian Black Tea

Darjeeling, once a British hill station, is known for producing some of the world’s most prized and expensive teas. The high elevation of Dajeeling tea gardens puts stress on the bushes and results in teas of exceptionally nuanced flavor. Less oxidized compared to later flushes, first flushes are lighter in body and greenish in color, with notes muscatel grape, burnt sugar and sage.

Darjeeling

Nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas in northern India, the Darjeeling region is home to 87 tea gardens. First flush begins in late March and lasts about 30 days, during which time each bush is plucked every seven days.

2nd Flush Darjeeling

Indian Black Tea

Darjeeling, once a British hill station, is known for producing some of the world’s most prized and expensive teas. The high elevation of Dajeeling tea gardens puts stress on the bushes and results in teas of exceptionally nuanced flavor. Teas produced during this period have fuller flavor than teas from the first flush, with notes of muscatel grape, wintergreen and sage.

Darjeeling

Nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas in northern India, the Darjeeling region is home to 87 tea gardens. Second flush begins in early May and lasts for about 30 days, where the tea bushes are plucked every seven days.
