About Darjeeling Green Tea

Darjeeling green tea is green tea produced in the Darjeeling district of India. Historically, most tea produced in India was black tea, so Darjeeling green tea is a relatively recent innovation, and is less well-known and has less tradition than Darjeeling black tea. But Darjeeling greens are more widespread and have a longer history of production than Darjeeling oolong and Darjeeling white tea.

It is difficult to generalize about the characteristics of Darjeeling green teas, as they are quite diverse. But Darjeeling green teas do have a particular character that makes them distinct from other styles of green tea, which is why we classify them as a style of their own. These teas often share certain characteristics of aroma in common with other Darjeelings, in contrast to other green teas.

Unlike black teas, Darjeeling green teas are less often classified by flush, even though the harvest times of these teas differ greatly and affect the character of the finished product just as with black tea.
