    Tasting Notes

    Courtesy of the first plucking of the Spring season from high-elevation clonal bushes in the world-renowned Arya Tea Estate in Darjeeling, the Arya Diamond First Flush Black Tea is truly a treat in a cup. One of the most sought after tea from the regal ‘gem’ collection from the Arya T.E, this tea has stylish wiry greenish-brown leaves interspersed with prized silvery tips. The leaves have a distinct sheen on them, earning them the name ‘Diamond’. With a light golden liquoring cup that has just the right amount of astringency, the tea has a subtle humming sweetness wrapped by minty and floral notes.
    The cup gives way to more complex layers of citrusy notes that delightfully elevate the experience. A gem of a harvest, undoubtedly.

    How are the Teas packaged?

    After sourcing our teas directly from plantations within hours of harvest, we bring them to our state-of-the-art tea facility in New Delhi, India. The teas then go through rigorous rounds of cleaning, sorting, quality testing to remove any impurities/dust/foreign particles. Post 10+ quality checkpoints for leaf size, aroma, liquor, flavors etc. these are vacuum-packaged in opaque aluminum-lined bags using sophisticated machinery. These vacuum-bags are then stored in a dehumidified, temperature-controlled warehouse which ensures that the teas remain garden-fresh and maintain their character. Further, required quantities are packed in smaller vacuum-sealed packs which are boxed in the retail boxes and then sent over to our own delivery centers located in various parts of the world.

You can read of the health benefits of tea here.

    What is the best way to make Black Teas?

    The best way to make a perfect cup of signature black tea is to get 200ml of freshly-filtered water to a boil (90-100 degrees celsius) and add 2 grams (0.07 oz) of your favorite black tea to it. Switch off the heat, cover it, and let the tea steep for 3-5 minutes depending on how strong you like your cup to be. Strain into a cup and sip while hot! The best time to have a cup of black tea is the morning or early evening. Since black tea has considerable caffeine (lesser than coffee) and hence should be avoided before bedtime. You can add a splash of milk to your black teas or have it plain as well. If you are wondering whether to add milk first or tea first to your cup, then you can read all about it here.
