This special Oolong from Darjeeling Hills is a mild semi-fermented between a black and a green tea. Due to its digestive properties is ideal to be sipped one hour after lunch.

 

Darjoolong is a highly aesthetically pleasing tea, with large uncut green/bluish leaves. The clear liquor is of  amber almost like nectar. When you breathe in through your nose, inhale the heady aroma of forest fire after a light rain, easing off to a refreshingly smoky feel to the palate.

How we prepare our Darjooong:
For optimum flavour natural spring water is recommended
1. Bring fresh water to first boil at 90°C
2. Add one heaped teaspoon full for each person to the water in a porcelain pot.
3. Steep for 3 and 1/2 minutes, cool down for 2 minutes before strain and serve. Sip tepid.
