Darjeeling Black Tea (Organic) • The Lhotse Autumnal


    The last picking of the season, this organic Darjeeling Black Tea has a distinct almond and marzipan profile. It has a strong, nutty flavour with light citrus and fruity notes. Our tea experts also loved the pumpkin-coloured brew, which is rare for an autumn flush tea in Darjeeling.
