Perfect for an afternoon tea, with shortbread.
Light, flavoursome and refreshing with a hint of muscatel. Treasured by tea lovers around the world, Darjeeling is an absolute classic tea for very good reason. Perfect for an afternoon tea, with shortbread.
Brewing the best cup. One teaspoon per cup. Freshly boiling water, brew your tea for 4 minutes, a good rule of thumb is 3-5 minutes for most black teas (depending on your preference for strength) and enjoy with or without milk
These teas are grown in the Darjeeling Province of India at 6,562 feet above sea level, nestled in the foothills of the Himalayan Mountain Range.The cool and moist climate, the soil, the rainfall and the sloping terrain all combine to give Darjeeling its unique "Muscatel" flavour and exquisite bouquet. The combination of natural factors that gives Darjeeling tea its unique distinction is not found anywhere else in the world, hence this finest and most delicately flavoured of all teas has, over the years, acquired the reputation of being the "Champagne of Teas."

Realy realy enjoyed this brew!
As usual my order was dealt with super fast and arrived a day or so later, you can't get better than that. The selection of teas is also gobsmacking, well worth a visit to the website.
I love Darjeeling with a cream tea and this one has a light and fragrant flavour. Scone, jam, Cornish clotted cream and this tea - heaven! Thanks to all at Tugboat.
This one is a particularly good Darjeeling - I definitely recommend it mid morning whilst procrastinating. Better than coffee. Thanks Jess, as ever
We have been ordering from Tugboat during lockdown and have been very impressed by the great service and lovely tea - and we are also enjoying discovering new varieties thanks to the free samples we have been receiving. When travel permits we would love to visit the shop! Many thanks again.
