The Gielle Tea Estate

This garden, located in the Himalayas at altitudes between 2,500 and 6,000 feet above sea level, was established in 1850. Frequently coated in early-morning mists, its name derives from the river that passes nearby.

Gielle has long had an outstanding reputation for producing the finest, indeed most delicious, types of Darjeeling First Flush Tea in the region. But will it help you get out of bed in the morning?

Does Darjeeling Tea Have Caffeine?

A common misconception is that First Flush Tea from Darjeeling is Loose Green Tea due to its distinctive colour. This is not true. It is, in fact, as mentioned above, a Black Tea.

The fact that it has gone through an extended period of oxidation likewise means that it contains a considerable amount of caffeine. You can expect around 45-mg of the stimulant per 8-oz serving, enabling you to start the day the right way.

  2. Place the Tea-filled accessory in a cup or mug.
  3. Begin brewing by pouring in freshly boiled water.
  4. Allow it to steep for 2-4 minutes.

How to Serve: Best served without additions. However, some like honey or lemon.

Tasting Notes: Imparts a vegetal flavour with peachy undertones.
