Organic Darjeeling Tea FTGFOP1 is a type of Indian Black Tea. It comes from the Darjeeling district of West Bengal, an area known for producing “the champagne of Tea”. This beverage is, of course, no exception, going above and beyond to impress casual drinkers and connoisseurs alike. We pack it fresh to order, ensuring not only quality but also consistency.
But that’s not all on offer here. Organic Darjeeling Tea FTGFOP1 is produced using controlled bio-cultivation methods, meaning it’s free of synthetic fertilisers, herbicides and pesticides. This ultimately sustains the health of soils and ecosystems while maintaining the wellbeing of those working in the industry. If you’re looking to support the environment, this infusion is a great start.
More About Darjeeling Tea
The history of Chinese Tea dates back some 5,000 years. Indian Tea, in comparison, only came into existence around 200 years ago. It was a Scottish explorer and merchant named Robert Bruce who discovered an Indian variety of the Tea plant growing in Assam. Not that long after, another Scot called Robert Fortune introduced Tea to the Darjeeling region.
However, this district holds a secret: Most Tea plants found here are Chinese varieties rather than Indian! Some have, in fact, hybridised, creating extraordinary Chinese-Indian Tea plants. Throughout the year, these produce several “flushes”, with Darjeeling First Flush Tea being the most prized.
Others include Second Flush, Monsoon Flush, Autumnal Flush and even, on occasions, a Winter Flush!
Why Choose Organic Tea?
The term “Organic” refers to the way agricultural products are made without using pesticides, insecticides, bio-engineered genes or petroleum/sewage-based fertilisers. Every Organic Tea, including this one, is certified by the regulatory body within the producing country. It is then checked and certified again as it enters the European Union (EU) before arriving in the UK.
Choosing Organic is one way of supporting the environment. It supports your health, too, because it’s free of nasty toxins. Ultimately, Organic Darjeeling Tea FTGFOP1 enables you to brew up a cuppa with a clear conscience.
What’s more, it helps that it tastes great - as, hopefully, you’re about to find out! Buy this wholesome, nutritious infusion from The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company today.

Benefits of Organic Darjeeling Tea
Organic Darjeeling Tea FTGFOP1, like all Black Tea types, contains an abundance of vitamins, minerals and other antioxidants. Due to its processing, the most common antioxidants are theaflavin and thearubigins, both of which can combat free radicals in the body.
This, in turn, slows down the process of oxidation, ultimately reducing the risk of developing several chronic conditions. Pretty neat for your morning cuppa, wouldn’t you agree?
