A caffeinated variety of black tea, Darjeeling tea is grown in specific regions of India. The tea is famous for its magnificent flavor, color, and aroma....

The Tea Accent's Darjeeling tea collection
The world's tea connoisseurs consider Darjeeling to be the hot beverage equivalent to champagne for many reasons. Apart from its delicate muscatel flavor and hints of almond fragrance, this tea grown at the foothills of the Himalayan Alps is distinguished by its exclusivity.
Darjeeling is not as widely available as other full-bodied black teas in India, such as Assam. Darjeeling contributes only about 1% of India's total tea production, whereas Assam tea makes up approximately 53%! With its curated collection of Darjeeling teas, Tea Accent offers a wide range of single-origin loose leaf teas sourced from orthodox estates.
