Description

You’ve just discovered the best Darjeeling Tea Bags around. These pockets of goodness are famous for their muscatel flavours with floral undertones, every sip of which evokes images of vast, mountainous landscapes half a world away. Be sure to buy Darjeeling Tea Bags online or in-store here at The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company. 

The Story Behind Darjeeling Black Tea Bags

Darjeeling is a district in West Bengal, India. During the colonial period, a Scotsman named Robert Fortune introduced Tea to the region. The growth of the industry continued throughout the 19th century. Now, Darjeeling Tea is one of the most popular Black Tea types globally due to its unique taste and well-documented health benefits. Nevertheless, it accounts for only 1% of India’s total Tea output. 

The most sought-after variety is First Flush Darjeeling Tea, referring to the year’s first harvest. There is also Second Flush, Monsoon Flush, Third Flush and sometimes Winter Flush. But things haven’t always been easy for the district. In 1991, the breakup of the Soviet Union - the Tea’s biggest buyer - caused economic turmoil. Separatist sentiment among Nepali-speaking Gorkhas has likewise led to issues.

Do Darjeeling Tea Bags Have Caffeine?

Those who intend to start their day the right way might consider caffeine the answer. This stimulating constituent exists in at least sixty plants, including Coffea (Coffee) and Camellia sinensis (Tea). Do Darjeeling Tea Bags have caffeine, then? Absolutely. You can expect about 45-mg of caffeine per serving, which is probably more than enough to help you out of bed in the morning. 

Plastic Free Darjeeling Tea Bags

Microplastics from Tea Bags are an enormous problem that needs addressing. The good news is that we’ve recently introduced biodegradable Darjeeling Tea Bags to support mother nature. Made from a combination of wood pulp and vegetable starch, they’re not a perfect solution but are at least better than the alternative. Discover their full and remarkable potential when you buy from us today. 

How to Brew Darjeeling Tea Bags

  1. Position the Tea Bag in your cup.

  2. Begin brewing by pouring in freshly boiled water.

  3. Allow it to steep for 2-4 minutes.

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

Tasting Notes: Embrace a muscatel flavour with floral undertones. 

Darjeeling Tea Bags Benefits

The likes of Vitamins B-2, B-5, B-9 and D, as well as Iron, Potassium, Magnesium, Sodium and Manganese, exist in large quantities in Darjeeling Tea Bags. Such nutrients combined can combat free radicals in the body. The result is that the infusion works on a molecular level to reduce the risk of developing numerous chronic conditions. What could be more impressive than that? 

It does, in fact, get better. According to a meta-analysis of five studies involving a total of 343 volunteers, drinking Black Tea for four weeks reduces blood pressure. Meanwhile, according to a review of nine studies with 194,965 volunteers, three cups a day decreased the risk of a stroke by 21%. There is even preliminary research indicating that it promotes weight loss and enhances cognitive function.

  1. Unfortunately for me I started my darjeeling journey on some of the most expensive loose leaf tea that K+S, T+C company sell. I was spoilt! These do not compare to the premium quality darjeeling tea, but, they make a really cracking cup of tea which knocks your regular supermarket teabags out of the park. Really tasty and as with the Gurkha tea-bags they sell, quite a unique flavoured brew. Lovely.

  6. Pleasant enough but not particularly strong or well flavoured. I use 2 tea bags per mug, but still much prefer twinnings, although my favourite is Jeeves and Jericho.
