Considered the most prestigious of all black teas, this second flush Darjeeling from Castleton produces a much more complex cup than its first flush varieties. With a bright liquor, full rounded flavor, and the distinctive "Muscatel" character, this is sure to become one of your favorite Darjeelings.
Kurseong, in Darjeeling, is a quiet, unassuming town, much loved by the solitude seeker. On the Darjeeling Toy Train route, this charming little town is affectionately called "Land of the White Orchid." And among the lush tea plantations that lie across these hills is the Castleton Tea Estate. With a planted area of over 170 hectars, Castleton produces 30,550 kgs of tea.
