Steenbergs Organic Green Darjeeling Tea is a truly exquisite green tea from the Ambootia Tea Estate. The Ambootia Tea Estate is in Darjeeling and sits in the foothills of the Himalayas, 400 miles due north of Calcutta, close to Nepal and Bhutan. At 6500 feet, the climate is temperate, but rainy, and you can see the scorching plains down below and the mighty Kanchenjunga almost as high as Everest. Ambootia grows Steenbergs organic green Darjeeling tea using organic farming practices, following the holistic and herbal approach of Bio-Dynamic principles. A small, but growing, amount of organic Darjeeling tea production is being processed as organic Fairtrade green tea - Steenbergs organic green darjeeling is a loose leaf speciality tea product.
Besides being a healthy drink, Steenbergs Darjeeling organic green tea has a different flavour to traditional Chinese & Japanese green teas. Steenbergs Ambootia organic green tea produces an amber cup with a distinctive green tea flavour but hinting of that classic muscatel flavour of Darjeeling. Organic green teas are naturally low in caffeine and contain polyphenols which are valued for their antioxidant properties. For more detail on the health properties of tea, please go to Tea Council
