Favorite tea

I love this tea. Glad it is back in stock. Darjeeling tea has been a favorite of mine since visiting Nepal for the first time 20 years ago and having Darjeeling tea daily.

Best Darjeeling Blend

Bungalow is my favorite Smith Tea - 1st and 2nd flush Darjeeling blend is just right for a smooth taste and a delicious cup or pot of tea.

Beat tea ever

This Bungalow tea is my all-time favorite. It’s worth every penny. I do hope you can start offering it as loose tea again— I prefer that to tea bags. Here’s hoping for a better tea crop!

It tastes...Cozy

The taste is mellow, with a bit of a kick. I find it comforting. It's a nice "kick back" beverage for mid afternoon.

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 quince, wintergreen 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 Darjeeling 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, burnt sugar and cedar.

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.
