TRENDS & NEWS
The origin of every TWG Tea begins with a journey. Each Spring, we embark on a journey to the foothills of the Himalayan Plateaus, in search of the finest Darjeeling first flush harvests.
Over deep mountain valleys across the cold misty clouds lies a verdant terrain, a winding passage of luscious terraced steps cultivating some of the most revered and sought-after tea leaves, is home to the celebrated Darjeeling harvests. The unique terroir of Darjeeling such as cool temperature, high altitudes of up to 2,500 meters, distinctive soil and rainfall impart a distinct and naturally occurring quality and flavour that yields some of the most exceptional and rare black teas in the world.
Hailed as the King of Black Teas, these Darjeeling first flush harvests are carefully picked by hand, processed and handcrafted in the most natural and artisanal tradition to produce an exceptional cup of Darjeeling Nouveau with outstanding notes of ripe fruits and nuts. Rich in aroma and complex in flavour, this Darjeeling first flush tea possesses a deep olive hue with silver tips and produces a bright, golden infusion with a unique peachy muscatel taste.
Beyond the extraordinary flavours in the teacup, tea is a journey and a discovery of a wonderful heritage and tradition, an experience like no other.
