What is Darjeeling Tea?

Darjeeling is a district in West Bengal, India. During the colonial period, it was the British, specifically a Scotsman named Robert Fortune, who introduced Tea to this region.

Growth of the industry continued through the 19th century. Now, Darjeeling Tea is one of the most popular Black Tea types globally due to its unique taste and well-documented health benefits.

Only around 1% of India’s total Tea output comes from the district. What it lacks in quantity, however, it makes up for in quality. First Flush Darjeeling Tea, which is the first harvest of the year, is the most sought after variety of them all.

There is also Second Flush, Monsoon Flush, Third Flush and even sometimes Winter Flush. Each variety has something unique, indeed extraordinary, to offer.

The Darjeeling district hasn’t always had things easy. In 1991, the breakup of the USSR saw the region temporarily lose its biggest buyers while its successor, the Russian Federation, took form.

More recently, separatist sentiment among the majority Nepali-speaking Gorkhas has brought about significant unrest. Despite this developing situation, Darjeeling Tea remains a staple of local culture and society.

Microplastics vs Plastic Free Tea Bags

Plastic Tea Bags Microplastics are a huge problem when it comes to the environment. This is why The Kent and Sussex Tea and Coffee Company has moved over to Plastic Free Darjeeling Tea Bags.

These are not only petrochemical plastic free but also fully biodegradable Tea Bags. We make them using a combination of wood pulp and vegetable starch, which is technically classified as a “bio-plastic.”

But what, exactly, does this phrase mean? A Bio-plastic, although not a 100% perfect solution, is far better for mother nature than Plastic Tea Bags Microplastics.

By using plant-based materials, it ensures the continued welfare of the world we live in - a world, it’s worth noting, where we get our Darjeeling Black Tea Bags. Why not realise its full potential today?
