DARJEELING ist eines der prestigeträchtigsten Tees weltweit – bekannt als ‘The Champagne of Teas’

Die Region um die indische Stadt Darjeeling ist das Zentrum der Bengalischen Teekultur und war der Ausgangspunkt der Karawanenroute nach Tibet.

Teeanbau in Bengal Darjeeling führt zu dem Engländer Arthur Campbell zurück (1805-1874). Campbell wurde von Kathmandu, Nepal nach Darjeeling im Jahre 1839 überführt (transferiert, überwiesen). Hier nutzte er Samen (Camellia Sinensis), die er aus der Kumaun Region in China gestohlen hatte, um mit Tee-Pflanzen in der Nähe seiner Residenz “Beechwood” in Darjeeling zu experimentieren.

Black Tea

Black tea is usually graded on one of four scales of quality. Whole-leaf teas are the highest quality, with the best whole-leaf teas graded as “orange pekoe.” After the whole-leaf teas, the scale degrades to broken leaves, fannings, then dusts. Whole-leaf teas are produced with little or no alteration to the tea leaf. Whole-leaf teas are widely considered the most valuable, especially if they contain leaf tips. Broken leaves are commonly sold as medium-grade loose teas. Dusts are the finest particles of tea left over from production and are used for tea bags…
