Brewing instructions


This Darjeeling Tea, graded as a Broken Pekoe Souchong (BPS), comes from the Sungma Tea Estate. Many of the gardens of this estate, situated in the Rung Bong Valley of the Darjeeling district, are certified organic. This means that Teas to have grown in these gardens are free from synthetic fertilisers, herbicides and pesticides.

With altitudes between 1,400 and 2,400 metres, and Tea-growing land spread out across 281 hectares, Sungma Tea Estate has become synonymous with quality. Our Darjeeling Tea Sungma Broken Pekoe Souchong, in particular, is one of their finest creations. Its leaves are tight and curly with portions of green. When brewed, it has a strong flavour with traditional muscatel notes. We pack it fresh to order here at our Kent-based factory.

Darjeeling Tea Facts

  1. Darjeeling lies in the Indian state of West Bengal?
  2. Despite its popularity, the region produces only 1% of India's Tea?
  3. Many of the plants used for its making are the Chinese variety, Camellia sinensis var sinensis, instead of the Indian variety, Camellia sinensis var assamica?
  4. The region's Tea Industry has existed since the mid-19th Century?
  5. There are around 80 Tea Estates across Darjeeling, with the Sungma Tea Estate being one of the most renowned?

Why Does It Look Green?

Despite its appearance, this beverage, like many Darjeeling Teas, is a Black Tea. The reason for its colour is because of limited oxidation. While Black Tea is the most oxidised type, many Darjeeling Teas undergo less oxidation than, say, China Black Tea.

The longer the leaves undergo this naturally occurring process, the darker they become. Or, as is the case with Darjeeling Tea Sungma Broken Pekoe Souchong, the shorter the oxidation, the more likely the green colour remains. This, of course, has no impact on the delicious, wholesome flavour of this brew.

  3. I love its tea. I use it as an every day tea and I get four mugs from one tea caddy spoon so it doesn't work out expensive at all compared to tea bags and it is by far nicer than any tea bag.
