SEASONAL BLACK TEA BLEND

Due to current supply constraints, Bungalow is now offered as a seasonal offering in new packaging.

Grown in the foothills of the Himalayas, this blend of first and second flush Darjeeling teas produces a light, yet complex tea with the aroma and flavor of fruits, nuts and flowers complemented by rich, toasty, buttery notes.

Bungalow lovers: We realize this is a significant price increase. This is due a wide variety of factors and we want to provide transparency in this increase and our process. Please read more by clicking here to learn about the 2021 harvest directly from our tea buyer, Sara Kaufman.

Kandy is such a treat

I love both the intensity and balance of Kandy and look forward to each cup I brew. It is delightful as is and on occasion, I add a wee bit of sugar or honey and creme for a real treat!

Darjeeling Teas

Bungalow is an Excellent tea! Aromatic, strong, lovely color. Steven Smith Teamaker offers the best Darjeeling teas on the market. The 1st and 2nd Flush Darjeeling teas are superb as well. I’m so glad these teas are available again. In the absence of them, I tried a few other brands of Darjeeling. But nothing came close to the aroma and flavor of Smith Darjeeling teas. It is a treat!

well worth it

This tea has the perfect balance for me of rich flavor but not bitter. A great change from things like English Breakfast. Special and worth it.

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.
